Editorial Reviews

Set in the town of Chalons near the German border at the time of the French Revolution during the Reign of Terror in 1794, Johann Strauss II' final operetta The Goddess of Reason languished for 111 years until this 2009 in-concert revival. Its light-heart

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I was most pleasently surprised by how good this operetta was especially after reading in the included booklet that Strauss did not want to write it and was legally forced to do so. He also finished it in only six months. For something that he didn't want to do and he did rapidly it came out wonderful! To be fair for a Strauss operetta this is truely great. Some of the most addictive music he had yet written is in here and I am surprised it took so long to be revived. You can clearly hear Strauss paving the way for the more modern waltzes that were yet to come in the Silver age of German operetta. In fact if you were to say that this was a Lehar operetta I would have easily believed it.
Apperently the libretto has long laid dormant and rotting beneath the old opera house and required a skilled hand to restore but thank God it was. The story (to be brief) takes place during the french revolution and involves Robes Pierre's attempt to replace Catholicism in France with his own religion. It sounds very serious but of course it is very not. This is a concert version and includes no dialogue but does include several additional waltzes based on the operetta score at the end of the second disc.
I heartily recommend this most welcome and latest addition of the Strauss Jr. revival to any Waltz fans, operetta fans, or light classical music fans. Everybody here preforms excellently and the recording quality is top notch.
