Notes & Reviews:

No other composer depicted the typical French effervescence and easy-going Parisian lifestyle so accurately, coupled with biting satire of the powers-that-be, as Jacques Offenbach. This album offers a cross-section of music from five of his successful operettas in a thoroughly authentic and spirited interpretation by French mezzo Jane Rhodes.

EMI Classics continues its Red Line series with another collection of timeless classical pieces. This series features a wide variety of the most talented classical pieces of all time, written by such legendary artists as Bach, Beethoven, Wagner, Tchaikovsky and Mozart. In addition, each CD features some of the most popular classical performers such as the London Classical Players, Andre Parrot, Bruno Leonardo Gelber and Libor Pesek. Every CD in the Red Line series features some of the most defining pieces in musical history.

MusicWeb International, 6th June 2013
These are particularly splendid examples of the idiomatic performance of Offenbach. Each is sung very much in character, with the manner of performance directed by the context of the item and by the words.
