Notes & Reviews:
By the time composer Victor Herbert began work in 1905 on his comic opera Mlle. Modiste, he already had 14 Broadway shows to his credit and a reputation as America's most prominent composer of stage music. Mlle. Modiste opened on Christmas Day of 1905 and ran for 202 performances. Herbert's musical score remains one of the supreme gems in the American operetta canon and it is fitting that the Ohio Light Opera celebrate the 150th anniversary of his birth with this delightful operetta.
”This is a good performanceThis one seems to be recorded without an audience present. There are no audible stage noises and no audience responses, including end-of-act applause. Mlle. Modiste is a cute show, and the OLO forces bring it merrily to life.”-FanfareNotes & Reviews:
