Symphony Orchestra Kurt Graunke, Munich, Wolfgang Ebert

Franz Lehár’s operetta “Paganini” (Vienna, 1925) marked the start of a new period in the composer’s work that was strongly influenced by the tenor Richard Tauber. Lehár now began to write works that were highly demanding in vocal terms and stylistically closely modelled on the opera repertoire. One of the most successful operettas from this period was undoubtedly “Paganini”, which includes the immortal melody “Gern hab’ ich die Frau’n geküsst”. Now, the legendary 1973 fi lm version of the operetta offers an opportunity to experience once again stars like Teresa Stratas, Peter Kraus, Dagmar Koller and, last but not least, Johannes Heesters.

Graunke Symphony Orchestra, Kurt Graunke

“The Count of Luxembourg”, composed in 1909, is a worthy equal to Léhar’s other operettas in terms of imaginative content, visual ideas and instrumental colouring. After the sensational success of the “Merry Widow” (1905), the composer quickly wrote an operetta that displayed real Parisian flair. This film version offers a wealth of artistic entertainment, with a superb cast that includes Eberhard Wächter, Lilian Sukis, Erich Kunz, Jane Tilden, Peter Fröhlich and Helga Papouschek.

Bavarian Radio Chorus, Munich Radio Orchestra, Heinz Wallberg

With his operetta “Gypsy Love”, premiered in 1910, Franz Lehár succeeded in combining the dramatic genre of opera with rousing Viennese waltzes and Hungarian folksongs. Dragotin has promised the hand of his daughter Zorika to the rich Jonel. Shortly before the engagement is formalised, the nature-loving

Zorika comes across the gypsy Józsi on the Czerna, a mountain river in Romania inhabited by mermaids, and invites him to play music at her engagement party. But when it comes to the engagement kiss from Jonel, she takes fright and fl ees back to the Czerna, where she hopes a glass of water from the river will reveal the future to her …

Die Lustige Witwe


Renée Fleming (Hanna Glawari), Nathan Gunn (Danilo), Kelli O’Hara (Valencienne), Alek Shrader (Camille)

The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Chorus & Ballet, Sir Andrew Davis

Director and choreographer Susan Stroman

The great Renée Fleming stars as the beguiling femme fatale who captivates all Paris in Lehár’s enchanting operetta, seen in a new staging by Broadway virtuoso director and choreographer Susan Stroman (The Producers, Oklahoma!, Contact).

Stroman and her design team of Julian Crouch (Satyagraha, The Enchanted Island) and costume designer William Ivey Long (Cinderella, Grey Gardens, Hairspray) have created an art-nouveau setting that climaxes with singing and dancing grisettes at the legendary Maxim’s. Nathan Gunn co-stars as Danilo and Kelli O’Hara is Valencienne. Sir Andrew Davis conducts.

Bonus Feature: Backstage at the MET with members of the Cast

English, French and German subtitles

“Davis keeps Lehar's effervescent score bubbling along and this would be the perfect, light-hearted operatic fare to see in the New Year...There's a great sense of fun running through the entire cast. Fleming's Hanna Glawari is glamorously over the top, as is Nathan Gunn's Danilo, revelling in his wild life of drinking, gambling and grisettes at Chez Maxim's.” Gramophone Magazine
