Editorial Reviews

Opera News - Richard Traubner
Marc Minkowski...once again tackles an Offenbach opéra-bouffe masterwork, and once again the results are felicitous.... Minkowski reveals instrumental details we've never heard before, accentuates the musical satire [and] brings out the merriment and beauty of choruses that are usually thrown away.... Felicity Lott...wavers between semi-divine stateliness, sexual passion and campy exasperation with considerable brio.
