Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
There is no doubting the beauty of Romberg's music. Eddy and Sherwood are in excellent voice and sing their songs probably the best I have heard. There's even Met star Salvatore Baccaloni as Ali Ben Ali, the desert villain with an Italian accent. The songs are complete with new orchestrations and include some newly added Romberg-based ballet music (a staple of these 1950s shows) choreographed by Rod Alexander, who did the dances in the film of Carousel. Everything fits together perfectly and the whole show is over in 75 fast and entertaining minutes.
