Man and Superman was the first drama to be broadcast on the BBC's Third Programme on October 1, 1946. To celebrate Radio 3's 50th anniversary, the play was directed by Sir Peter Hall, and preserved for all time in this lush audio dramatization.
'A comedy and a philosophy', Man and Superman is based on the Don Juan theme, and using all the elements from Mozart's Don Giovanni, Shaw reordered them so that Don Juan becomes the quarry instead of the huntsman.
Boasting an outstanding cast including Ralph Fiennes, Juliet Stevenson, Dame Judi Dench, John Wood, Nicholas Le Prevost, and Paul Merton, this release includes an exclusive interview with director Sir Peter Hall.

A wonderful performance by the actors especially Ralph Fiennes. Such a great masterpiece. Highly recommended.
I simply expected more of Dame Judi- as she was given first billing in Audible's synopsis (in list of narrators).
Yes; the man was brilliant.
Opening scenes, I suppose. It does labor on toward the conclusion.
