 fine account of a shortened score May 29, 2013 By J. Tatnall (West Grove, PA) See All My Reviews "Christoff is the big draw here, both as Galitsky and the Khan. And he is in his element, having a grand time! He is well supported by a professional, idiomatic cast of singers and a chorus and orchestra used to this repertory. Semkow conducts grandly with great verve. The only drawback is a heavily cut score: trims to the overture and act 4, a few snippets elsewhere, and all of act 3 banished, a custom only recently gone out of fashion. However, for its attributes and only being 2 CDs, it is worth getting as a fine alternate listen." Report Abuse
