    An exciting production

    What a wonderful operetta production with the Vienna State Opera! Lucia Popp shines, not unexpectedly, as Rosalinde. Her Csardas is fantastically done with great style and feeling. I was particularly taken with Bridgette Fassbaender as Prince Orlofsky. Rarely have I seen a pants role performance without constantly being aware of the awkwardness that comes from a woman playing a man's role, but Fassbaender is fantastic! The sets and costumes are exquisite, and the cast is highly energetic. Although larger-than-life stage acting sometimes looks silly on screen, where we're used to more subtle movements, it is refreshing to see such an ensemble cast of actors. You won't find any "stand and deliver" performances here! The stage direction by Otto Schrenk and the choreography by Gerlinde Dill are equally interesting and exciting. Most importantly, the singing is all top notch. A professional production in every way!
