Following the awards-winning releases of Fantasio (2015) and Vert-Vert (2009), Opera Rara presents its fourth complete opera recording by Jacques Offenbach, a composer considered the father of the operetta and whose pioneering work influenced greatly many musicians in the 20th century.
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.

“The stylish revival from Opera Rara boasts a brilliant aria about toothache, a temper tantrum in waltz time and a hilarious plate spinning quintet... Hugely enjoyable and great fun.” – The Guardian, 18 September 2022
