by Johann Strauss
a Vienna-Operetta-Evergreen (1874).
a hilarious story
hear and watch the whole operetta on you tube by the Netherlandse Opera (ca. 2,5 h)in brilliant quality (1997).
or the older performance of Covent Garden with english subtitles (Kiri TeKanawa, Hermann Prey, Placido Domingo as conductor)
i hope you can receive it in Canada.
...or go to your own Opera House in Toronto :-)
Sam, thank you so much for making me search and discover
