Chandos Opera in English

I know many people aren't a fan of translated operas, and it wouldn't be my primary method either. But as a side niche it interests me a bit. So what versions of these (or other English translated) operas do you find to be of reasonably good quality? And if you can't actually understand the words feel free to skip it, it'd only be worthwhile if I could actually understand it, I would prefer the original language if I'm not going to understand anyway :D

The only recording I have from this series is The Pearl Fishers which is ok. I bought it mostly out of curiosity and it was one of the few to get reasonable reviews. I agree that it's often difficult to understand much of what is being sung anyway. I can't see me buying more anytime soon.
