CD Reviews

FABULOUS OFFENBACH, BUT LIBRETTO IS EMI FABLE
RAFAEL | MIAMI | 08/30/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"EMI claims on the back of this set that the full libretto is available for download on their website. This is not the case! It is nowhere to be found! I advise everyone who buys this release to post a comment on the EMI website demanding that they stand by their word and make the libreto available to everyone who purchases this CD, as promised. Much of Offenbach's comedy depends on the fabulously witty texts. With no libretto, one is missing half the fun!"
Wonderful light, lilting opera
Jamakaya | Milwaukee, WI | 05/19/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a wonderful and rare recording of Les Brigands, a comic opera with lilting, infectious melodies. Why it's not better known and performed, I don't know. The sound quality and clarity of voices is good. Only negative, as a previous reviewer noted, is that the libretto is NOT on the EMI Classics site, as promised in the CD notes. Can't blame Offenbach or the Lyons Opera for that -- they deliver!"
