Premièred in Vienna for the celebration of his artistic golden jubilee in 1893, Strauss’s Princess Ninetta enjoyed seventy-six performances and critical approval: “The libretto was a success in the true sense of the word, the music was charming and was thoroughly pleasing. Strauss has once more spun us such delightful melodies”.

Its Neue Pizzicato Polka remains one of its more popular excerpts and Strauss fashioned other orchestral music from its appealing score.

Yet the operetta itself still enchants, as this sparkling new recording amply shows.

“The live recording is of a performance with Swedish personnel in Stockholm in October 2007. It's altogether professionally done, with orchestra and chorus that are especially good.”
