A travelling circus, an innocent prince in love with a waxwork and a lottery ticket to win a magnificent castle… What could possibly go wrong? The delightful opera La Princesse de Trébizonde (1869) is packed with irresistible melodies finely crafted with delicate harmonies and inventive orchestration characteristic of Offenbach’s style.
Following the award-winning releases of Robinson Crusoe (1993), Vert-Vert (2009) and Fantasio (2015, Opera Rara presents its 4th complete opera recording by Jacques Offenbach, whose pioneering work influenced greatly many composers in the 19th and 20th centuries.
Conductor Paul Daniel leads an all-star cast including Virginie Verrez and Anne-Catherine Gillet in this premiere recording of Jean-Christophe Keck’s critical edition. This recording also includes several extracts from the Baden-Baden original.
