A new recording of this supreme gem of American operetta.

By the time composer Victor Herbert began work in 1905 on his comic opera Mlle. Modiste, he already had 14 Broadway shows to his credit and a reputation as America's most prominent composer of stage music. With Metropolitan Opera star Fritzi Scheff in the title role of Fifi, the hatgirl with dreams of a stage career, Mlle. Modiste opened on Christmas Day of 1905 and ran for 202 performances. Herbert's musical score remains one of the supreme gems in the American operetta canon and it is fitting that the Ohio Light Opera celebrate the 150th anniversary of his birth with this delightful operetta.

Review:
"This 'live, onstage' recording from Ohio Light Opera's 2009 season preserves all the original sweetness and vitality of Herbert's lovely score." (Opera News)

"Herbert was without a doubt a marvelous melodist, a terrific orchestrator, certainly the best American exponent of operetta at the turn of the 19th to 20th centuries. ...no serious operetta fan will want to be without this." (American Record Guide)
