Grand Duchess of Gerolstein - Offenbach (another of Frenchman's amusing & striking operettas 2 CDs)

£6.99

Product description

(featuring : The Cologne Orchestra, conducted by Pinchas Steinberg ; The Cologne Choir, conducted by H Schernus ; and the cast includes : Soprano Enriqueta Tarres as The Grand Duchess ; Actress Marianne Rogee delivers the dialogue ; Tenor Adolf Dallapozza as Fritz ; Bass Alexander Malta as General Bumm ; Soprano Saskia Gerritsen as Wanda ; Tenor Josef Protschka as Prince Paul ; ... and various others ...)

Jacques Offenbach (1819-80) three-act operetta, in which the titular Grand Duchess, of the tiny principality of Gerolstein, has her amorous desires reawakened by a handsome private, called Fritz, in her army. Fritz is, however, too preoccupied by his current lady-love, Wanda. Indeed, Fritz and Wanda are, it seems, a very attractive and desirable couple, as the General Bumm is all too aware - having tried and failed to woo Wanda, to the amusement of the pair.

However, with the Grand Duchess' arrival, after she falls for an unresponsive-Fritz's charms, she unwisely promotes him to Captain, to try to curry favour ... and then blanks her former lover, foppish Prince Paul.

The comical synopsis, duly follows the various courses, of doomed-, or successful-, fancies of the heart, as well as the course of the conflict, that the Gerolstein army are engaged in.

Disc One : The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein, by Offenbach (beginning) :-
1) Overture (4:00) ; 2)-21) Act One (48:55).

Disc Two : The Grand Duchess ... (conclusion) :-
1)-12) Act Two (34:01) ; 13)-24) Act Three (26:13).
