Glyndebourne’s pulsating new production of the Waltz King’s much-loved comic operetta includes outstanding performances from a cast led by Pamela Armstrong, Thomas Allen, Ragnar Ulfung and Håkan Hagegård with The Glyndebourne Chorus and London Philharmonic Orchestra under Vladimir Jurowski.
This is a 2-DVD set!
"The London Philharmonic are on their toes. The pace is racy, the articulation brilliant, the Viennesisms deftly in place, the waltz fruity and uplifting. It’s a cracking start…almost pure gold. With Vladimir Jurowski shaping the score with ravishingly subtle and sexy rubati, a strong cast is headed by Thomas Allen in superbly virile voice…" - The Independent
"...a beautifully produced and recorded DVD, the image glowing, the soundtrack…crisply clear." - The Gramophone
"Allen, Armstrong and Erman are very fine; Erman's mezzo with baritone undertones is a particular pleasure. Video is flawless: crisp and well lighted. Audio is clear and full-range; there is a plus from surround in orchestra reproduction. The supplements are substantial and of interest..." - Michael Richter, Opera Japonica
