Catalogue Number: 03K043
Description: Strauss' proantepenultimate operetta (it came in 1893, right before Jakuba which was recorded on Naxos two years ago) has the expected irresistible melodies and vitality one wants in such a genre and is recorded live here, complete but without dialogue. Since no English translation of the libretto is available, a full synopsis is provided (but who listens to Strauss for the texts?). 2 CDs. German libretto available on-line. Tua Åberg (soprano), Fredrik Strid (tenor), Jesper Taube (baritone), Ninetta Chorus, Stockholm Strauss Orchestra; Valéria Csányi.
