Considered one of Offenbach’s most beautiful and refined works, Fantasio offers a heady cocktail of charm, gentle melancholy, bad-tempered jokes and poetry, and marks the crucial step in Offenbach’s path towards The Tales of Hoffmann. This recording marks the world premiere studio recording of the complete opera using the new critical edition by Jean-Christophe Keck. The complete libretto in original French and English, as well as the synopsis in French, Italian and German, is downloadable from the Opera Rara website at www.opera-rara.com/fantasio
This recording won the 2015 International Opera Awards for best CD (Complete Opera).
