The corks pop and the champagne flows in this sparkling production of
Johann Strauss's world-famous operetta with the ensemble of the Bavarian
State Opera. Carlos Kleiber conducts Strauss's music with a temperament,
vigor and sensuality that bring to mind contemporary reports on Johann
Strauss's own conducting style: "His whole body was conducting - the
hands, head, eyes, torso and feet of the master". But Kleiber can also
invoke another inspired model and predecessor for his interpretation: in
1894, Gustav Mahler conducted the work at the Hamburg Stadttheater,
lavishing his usual care and precision on it and paving its way into the
repertoire of all major opera houses.
