Notes & Reviews:
Carl Maria von Weber's giant fantasy, with English libretto, tells the story of the king of the fairies. 'Oberon' is full of a rich variety of musical styles and mixes some of the familiar characters of Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' with trials of love in exotic settings. "Stylish and refined...the set can be recommended without reservation"-The Penguin Guide
BBC Music Magazine
At bargain price, this first recording of Weber's English opera, albeit in German, still offers strong competition for Gardiner's new recording. Nilsson and a young Domingo thrill in the leading roles.
