Carl Zeller: The Birdseller / Motta, Ohio Light Opera

Album Summary

>Zeller, Carl : Der Vogelhändler
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Carl Zeller, after service in the Vienna Court Chapel Choir, studied both composition and law and earned his doctorate in law from Graz University in 1869. He spent most of life in government service, writing music in his spare time. Although Zeller composed several works for the musical theatre, his reputation rests mainly on The Birdseller, which had its premiere in 1891. It has a familiar boy-meets-girl plot, set in that never-never land of operetta where mistaken identities are as common as pine trees and nightingales sing on cue. The Birdseller's best-known melody is "Roses in Tyrol," the magnificent song and ensemble that climaxes Act I.
