Format: Audio CD
GIUDITTA, premiered very glamourously with Jarmila Novotna and Richard Tauber in Vienna in 1934, is Lehar's final major stage work, ambitious, very opulently scored and surprisingly moderne. The synopsis borrows unashamedly from CARMEN, Dietrich's MOROCCO and Romberg's DESERT SONG. Since this is North African cabaret, tango and habanera rhythms (with castanets) pop up improbably among the great Lehar waltzes, the entire ramshackle affair endearingly loopy but redeemed by the great music.

Hadley and Bonynge are the main attractions here, with the Australian Deborah Riedel adequate but not stellar in the title role. The only drawback is the too-literal English translations, turning Hadley's big aria into "Comrades, this life is the life for me" and Riedel's seductive showstopper into "Kiss my lips and your heart is aflame." Tune out the ridiculous texts and just revel in the soaring melodies and rich Viennese harmonies in the orchestrations. In the great operetta tradition, the fates of these louche characters are not unduly tragic: Giuditta becomes the toast of the booming North Africa cabaret circuit, and tenor Octavio, demobbed and permanently smitten with danseuse Giuditta, becomes, horror of horrors, a nightclub pianist (maybe this is an operetta fate worse than death). Hadley and Bonynge both rate five stars, as would the set as a whole if only it were sung in German (or Viennese). I did not use the word "kitsch" once in these musings, and for that I congratulate myself. In the unreal fantasy domain of operetta, Leharian kitsch decisively trumps all rivals, including the Hungarian's great Broadway imitators and successors.
