Catalogue Number: 10S094
Reference: 777 974-2
Description: The notes describe this as “an Austro-Hungarian anachronism on the brink of disaster” and “the last creation of the ‘Silver Age’ of Viennese operetta”. Premiered in February of 1939, catastrophe was only seven months away and Dostal hearkened back to the style of Lehár, Kálmán and Stolz, appealing above all to a sense of nostalgia. 2 CDs. English synopsis. Evgeni Taruntsov (tenor), Regina Riel, Anna-Sophie Kostal (sopranos), Thomas Zisterer (baritone), Chorus of the Bad Ischl Lehár Festival, Franz Lehár Orchestra; Marius Burkert.
