Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the early 20th century, Operetta received new life most notably through Franz Lehár. In Die Lustige Witwe (1905) he established himself as one of the supreme masters of the musical theatre and he led a new generation of Viennese operetta composers. Here are seven complete Operettas of Franz Lehár from EMI in a very specially priced 13 disc set: Die Lustige Witwe, Der Graf von Luxemburg, Paganini, Der Zarewitsch, Friederike, Das Land des Lächelns and Giuditta.

Please note - Detailed notes and synopses are included, although there are no libretti.
