Notes & Reviews:

When the lady-killer Duke of Urbino decides to seduce Barbara, the most beautiful woman in town, at a masked ball, the scene is set for an unforgettable night. But the duke's barber, Caramello, hands out the invitations to his working-class friends instead of the cream of society, and mistaken identities contribute another hilarious chapter to the war of the sexes. Strauss's sparkling score for A Night in Venice enjoyed considerable success around the world. Although later arranged by Korngold, it is heard here in its original version and free from spoken dialogue.

Notes & Reviews:

Reviews

Live in Venice
This is the latest in a series of Johann Strauss operettas on Naxos, each taken from a single performance of a dialogue-free concert version. While the earlier Strauss outings were genuine rarities, there are several NIGHTs to consider--all have their problems, though. Good things here: Daniel Buckard sings quite well as the Duke; the original orchestration is used, without the later additions by Korngold, and you probably get more of the actual score (and bonus tracks) than on any other recording. Not so good things: the principal females share their roles among them, making it hard to identify any voice with a particular character; some soloists have pitch issues, or find themselves too far from the mike at times. As the sound is generally good, chalk that up to recording live, and enjoy this set for the bargain it is.
