About

At mid price for the first time - a truly legendary 1960 recording of a sparkling Strauss classic, including a star-studded 'gala cabaret' featuring:
 
Birgit Nilsson • Renata Tebaldi • Joan Sutherland • Leontyne Price • Teresa Berganza • Fernando Corena • Jussi Björling • Mario Del Monaco • Giulietta Simionato • Ettore Bastianini • Ljuba Welitsch
 
Karajan's recording of the Waltz King's ever-popular Viennese comedy has long been a glory of the Decca opera catalogue. The cast of operetta favourites is led by sopranos Hilde Gueden as Rosalinde and Erika Köth as the maid Adele.
 
The sound is sparklingly clear,...The performance of the opera itself has all the sparkle one could ask for...and the Decca recording is scintillating in its clarity.” The Penguin Guide to Opera on Compact Disc
