Finally! The first complete recording of this classic operetta.

We are so pleased to be able to offer this month the first complete CD recording of Victor Herbert's beloved two-act classic romantic operetta, composed in 1910 and set in New Orleans. This performance was recorded live at the Ohio Light Opera 2000 Summer Festival by John Ostendorf. About this production, James Stuart, the founder of the Ohio Light Opera Company writes: "For summer 2000, Steven Daigle approached me in planning his first full season as Artistic Director. He wanted to undertake Marietta. He felt we should try to go back to the original materials and produce the show that had earned Victor Herbert such a triumph, with its beautiful melody, its tenderness, humor and resounding choruses. Steven's mounting of the opera was a grand success. In its original form the relation of parts to one another makes much more sense. Free of excesses, the emphases now seem to fall in their proper places: the show is much tighter and the wonderful songs, following one on top of the other, leave the listener breathless."

"The work is a veritable cornucopia of melody" (American Record Guide)

"I recommend the...recording, for capturing a lively performance of one of the livelier chapters in the birth phases of American music theater." (Fanfare)
