Notes & Reviews:

After the smash hit of 'La Fille du Regiment' with Natalie Dessay and Juan Diego Florez, Virgin Classics continues to develop its DVD catalog with a new stage production by renowned director Laurent Pelly (who also produced La Fille) accompanied by his assistant Agathe Melinand, who adapted the dialogues as in the other productions. Filmed in Lyons during the hit performances of late-2007/2008, the production has recast for our modern times the satirical portrayal of Parisian life in the Second Empire. Pelly's wild and frenzied staging brings out the humor and gusto of Offenbach's operetta, and the rich cast of singers - including Laurent Naouri, Natalie Dessay's husband - sparkle under the lively baton of Sebastien Rouland.
