5.0 out of 5 stars Offenbach: La Vie Parisienne 4 Jun 2012
By Bjorn Viberg - Published on Amazon.com
Offenbach: La Vie Parisienne is a 1976 recording under direction of Michel Plasson who leads the choir and Orchestra of Toulouse. The booklet contains music notes and all the lyrics. The all French cast is right on the mark as only a Frenchmen truly understands French. Truly an enjoyable Opéra bouffe. Highly recommended indeed. 5/5.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a bargain it was 11 April 2011
By William J. Coburn - Published on Amazon.com
In the early 90's I was able to buy four of Offenbach's operettas at Tower's Record Annex, which is long gone. Cds were sold for about $1.98. I purchased La Vie Parisienne, La Belle Helene, Orphee aux Enfers and La Perichole, plus numerous other albums of works of other composers. They were all new CDs. Record companies had discovered that the number of Americans who bought classical music had dropped from 11 percent to 6 percent, and so record companies dumped much of their inventory. By 2011 the number of people who listen to classical music has dropped even more. Do I feel bad that American tastes for great music has declined? Yes, but I got a chance to snap up so much great music, including much more when BMG Music and J&R did the same.
I have bought two other operettas of Offenbach since then, but these four are, to me, the most melodic and entertaining. All but one of them are from EMI. The other, La Perichole, is from Erato. If you are lucky in these bad times to have a lot of money, buy all four of them. These are wonderful pieces of music.

yes the work is very good, but dialogues are too long, & not numbered, they come together dialog & singing in the same number, for that i prefer the German Willy Mates version. there i can suppress all the dialogs & listen only to all the beautiful music. i also have another German version, this one with no dialogs, by Nuova era, but it really stinks, is very amateur . when they make it into a low price non libretto format, they should correct the numbering, the way it is, takes all the fun away
