Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Three One-Act Operettas by Jacques Offenbach:

"Le Mariage aux Lanternes" = "The Betrothal by Lantern Light" (1857)

"Le Fifre enchante" or "Le Soldat magician" = "The Enchanted Fife Player" or "The Soldier Magician" (1864)

"L'ile de Tulipatan" = "The Isle of Tulipatan" (1868)

Before anyone reports me to Amazon, let me point out that "Grosser Querschnitt" is German for "Highlights" (literally "Greater Cross-Section").
Performed in German translation:
"Die Verlobung bei der Latern", "Die kleine Zauberflote", und "Die Insel Tuilipatan".
Each opera is slightly under a half-hour in length.
Pretty sure they are "Grosser Querschnitt".

Hanssler Classics is a label with a reputation for quality production values, but they dropped the ball this time.
There is a 16 page booklet, but no plot summaries.
Not a paragraph.
Nice bouncy music, annoying German dialogue, but I wonder what's going on.

"L'ile de Tulipatan" has been recorded once before, complete and in French: Offenbach: L'ile de Tulipatan (The Island of Tulipatan)
This 1984 recording times in at 60:33 versus 29:38 for the Kleiber/Hanssler which confirms my suspicion that the latter is "Grosser Querschnitt".

I'm pretty sure that "Le Mariage aux Lanternes" and "Le Fifre enchante" have never been recorded before.

Recorded from German television in 1962 (limited mono sound).
The video no longer exists.
Carlos Kleiber is a conductor who I normally award five stars as a matter of course, but I am withholding one due to the inadequate presentation by Hanssler.
