Album Summary

>Lehár, Franz : The Merry Widow
Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

With Petra-Maria Schnitzer and Bo Skovhus the cast includes some of the most prestigious singers of the younger generation under the expert leadership of conductor Manfred Honeck. This staging by the famous opera director Jerome Savary makes the "Merry Widow" a very colourful and a subtle tribute to the golden age of Hollywood, congenially directed for video by Don Kent, who has garnered much respect as TV director. Recorded live at the marvelous Semperoper Dresden in December 2007, this 145-minute performance of song and dance, promises a highly entertaining "night out" at home!
