Notes & Reviews:
A dream cast of singers from both West and East Germany, this 1976 recording of Nicolai's ever popular opera Die Lustigen Weiber von Windsor features Edith Mathis, Helen Donath, Hanna Schwartz, Kurt Moll, Peter Schreier and Bernd Weikl. This is the first complete recording of the opera, including the spoken dialogues. Delicious orchestral support brims with wit and esprit from the Staatskapelle Berlin conducted by Bernhard Klee. It's a true classic from the rich archives of Berlin Classics.
