Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A wonderful CD of a lovely Operetta by Leo Fall and the wonderful thing about it is it has been recorded at live performances at the wonderful Weiner Volksoper the true home of Operetta, all the singers are great and in superb form the CD itself is wonderful full of life and vigour from the start to finish. Lets hope this cd is a great success and that CPO will be encouraged to record more operettas from the home of operetta.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... Smiles not so popular in this country which is sad as it is a wonderful operetta as you will ..., 8 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Das land des lacheln or as its known in English The Land Of Smiles not so popular in this country which is sad as it is a wonderful operetta as you will discover if you purchase this 2CD set, Rothenberger Gedda and Holm are all on top form vocally the only thing missing is the lovely ballet music which opens act 2 otherwise th is 2 set CD is complete and I would recommend anyone who loves this genre and Lehar in particular to try and get hold of a copy of what is a superbly remastered recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars great walderstraum ( waltz dream ), 9 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ein Walzertraum (Audio CD)
Although this recording is in mono it still captures to the full the wonderful music Oscar Straus wrote for this lovely operetta and it all goes with great timing all the musical numbers are superb the cast are from an eara when they knew how to sing this genre and were often found in operas too, the orchestra and chorus are in great form, if you can bear with a mono recording this is well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful Die Zauberflote, 13 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This production of Mozarts Die Zauberflote is nothing short of wonderful the sound is splendid and the remastering great. All of the soloists are outstanding if you have to name one then it would have to be the superb Sumi Joe as the queen of the night this is singing at its most outstanding the Wiener Philharmoniker and the Wiener Staatsoper chor are as always outstanding and with Solti in charge there is little to go wrong, if you want a superb Die Zauberflote then you should not hesitate buying this wonderful cd recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smetana Die Verkaufte Braut ( The Bartered Bride), 22 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a jolly romp with tip top singers when they were at the very top of their prime in the 60s. It was recorded at a live performance in the Vienna State Opera in November 1960, the only draw back for many people will be in the fact that the 2cds are in mono, non the less I find the whole performance outstanding both the State Opera Chorus and Orchestra are wonderful as are all the outstanding soloists, the sound for mono is very lively, if you don't mind a recording in mono then you will more than enjoy this performance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Von Suppe delightful Fatinitza, 21 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Von Suppé - Fatinitza (Audio CD)
This is a great 2cd recording of Suppes Operetta Fatinitza . Only two operettas of Von Suppe exist to day this one and his most popular work of all Boccaccio, one item from Fatinitza does remain popular to this day and is quite often herd at Viennese concerts The Fatinitza March from Act3, but this is a great musical operetta most of it is in March time which makes it very sparkling and the main singers Gerhard Balluch and Erik Groller are superb as are the rest to the cast Chorus and Franz Lehar Orchestra, the sound quality is outstanding on both cds, and my advice to anyone who enjoys this genre is don't delay get hold of a copy without delay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful Opernball, 19 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Heuberger operetta Der Opernball or The Opera Ball has only seen light of day in Vienna and other parts of Austria and Germany. I is a most delightful and charming work and this film version stays true to the stage version, all the artiests are first rate as are the very large ensemble the costumes and scenery are delightful to the eye and the whole work lasts just over 100min. Its hard to believe that this composer was given first option on the Merry Widow but found it dull and gave him little inspiration whereupon it was handed over to Franz Lehar and the rest as they say is history.
