Notes & Reviews:

Johann Strauss's Der Carneval in Rom (1873) was completely overshadowed by the premiere of Die Fledermaus a year later, and yet is a match for it in every way. This music appeals to the audience's complete emotional world instead of just its sense of humor, taking Strauss's typical public by surprise and resulting in the operetta's comparatively modest success. The successful modern revival of this work was performed at the Dresden State Operetta in 2004, whose cast is heard on this recording.

International Record Review
Theis certainly conducts music he evidently loves with infectious zing and he chooses his casts presumably as much for their acting ability as for their voices...Isabella Ma-Zach, the Marie, is thoroughly versed in the style and delivers the words with panache
