Notes & Reviews:

Leo Fall's early career mirrored that of his famous contemporary Franz Lehár. Both were born in provinces of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and soon moved to the Imperial capital, Vienna. There they both wrote a series of glorious operettas. Fall's The Rose of Stambul, set in Ottoman Turkey, is a sparkling masterpiece that ran for fifteen months, the most successful such work since Lehár's The Merry Widow, composed eleven years earlier. The plot offers comedy, mistaken identity, cultural misunderstandings, exoticism, and, of course, a romance that must overcome various obstacles, while Fall's melodies are exquisitely beautiful, with numerous hit songs.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
The enthusiastic performers sing and act with complete conviction, and it's easy to be caught up in the music. Intelligibility is quite high, but if you still want a libretto, you can find one on the Naxos website. I'm perfectly satisfied with the old set of excerpts starring Fritz Wunderlich.
