I bought this CD partly because I had a wonderful trip to Austria once, and partly because Anneliese Rothenberger, one of my favourite singers, is on it. It must have been made quite a few years ago, but the quality of the recording is good, and I love the songs, the voices, and the characters chatting in between songs. This operetta is also one of my favourites. You have to know German to follow it, but if you do, you'll enjoy it. I picture the dramatic and beautiful scenery of Austria while listening to it. Definitely five stars from me!
