Ghost Town was given a supmtuous production at the Metropolitam Opera House in November 1939. Richard Rodgers conducted it. This is still the only recording of the score, a major work by Rodgers.The orchestrations are by the great Hans Spielek who also orchestrated the Boradway Classic musiclas by George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Rodgers and Hart, Cole Prter and others.
