Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is the auspicious premiere of a series of New Year's Eve Concerts from the famous Semperoper in Dresden. Christian Thielemann, designated Principal Conductor of Staatskapelle Dresden, pours his expertise into Lehár's evergreen The Merry Widow, with the operatic megastar Renée Fleming in the title role.

Adding to the magnetic presence of Renée Fleming is the chocolaty baritone and charm of Christopher Maltman. Short encores from Lehár's The Land of Smiles and, on this occasion, obligatory, waltzes of Johann Strauss II, round the musical event off.

Fleming also performs a few encores including "I Could Have Danced All Night" from My Fair Lady.
