There are few things that bring me greater pleasure than this. To know that nothing but the occasional highlight would be all that would exsist if not for Opera-Rara and the Peter Moores Foundation makes me want to kiss the ground that they walk on for making this magnificent recording!
This is forgotten Offenbach at his finest! This is one of the hidden treasures that I thank god someone had the good taste and means to do something about and make sure that it reaches the public!
This is genious, this is brilliance, this is a blessing for the artistic and operatic world for those not blind to see it.
So many excellent preformers and what a lovely recording. What a plus that they would add long lost music to a long lost opera-comique! It gives me goose bumps to even think about it. Pure pleasure...do not deprave yourself.
As an earlier reviewer stated this is an absolute delight. What the other review did not mention is that it is in English so that those whose French is a mite rusty needn't be deterred. It is a fine and clever translation as well. If I were still directing musicals (which I did for many years) I would certainly persuade one of the organizations I worked for to do it. Why it remains a rarity is a mystery.
