    Yes, I've seen it. It is definitely one of the better ones (better than la Veuve Joyeuse with Veronique Gens). My favourite is Die Fledermaus conducted by Kleiber.

    I've watched a lot of other German operettas like Zigeunerliebe and Das Land des Lächelns and found them totally daft (yes , I know, I like Trovatore....)

    Can you expend on this a bit more?

    I don't typically follow along with a libretto, so can't speak to any dramatic impression of the piece. It's a comic opera that dates to 1793 or thereabouts, so is composed very much in the style of Mozart and the late Classical period. The singing is superb and the music is sprightly - bright and sparkling. No Sturm und Drang. The sound is very good, but does require a small volume boost.

    I've got this version and it's great fun

    Wonderful performances from Elizabeth Futral and Bruce Ford in a sadly neglected opera of the belcanto tradition.

    The weather was very mild Saturday afternoon, so a long walk was in order. What better to listen to than:

    This is the Solti recording from 1969 with Regine Crespin, Yvonne Minton, Helen Donath, Manfred Jungwirth and a very young and superb Luciano Pavarotti as the Italian Tenor.

    I didn't think I was that keen on Lully but this has very lovely music. I think I'm in a bit of a Sun King mood these days anyway.

    Those in a Sun King mood can listen to Royer's Pyrrhus on spotify. I would recommend it

    I love those Opera Rara recording, although not all are recorded very refined the music is sometimes stunning.
