keep away from this .... Giuditta's story you can read it anywhere in the internet.... very interesting but a copy and paste is ridiculous ... I already had the Moser Gedda Boskovsky 1985 recording ..... this 1997 Bonynge it doesn't have dialogs which I think is great if it wasn't bcos it just seems like a recount of the story with the most well known pieces chopped in half .. in the 4th scene the "in einem meer von liebe".. Moser Boskovsky.. lasts 4.28 minutes with all the Spanish fanfare etc... the Riedel Bonynge " visions of love enfold" me is only is 2.30 min. no fanfare no repeat ... all well known meine lippen , sie kussen so heiss 4.38 min. in Boskovsky's in Bonynge's is 4.50 , but the repeat at the number 17 (no track .. scene number) is totally obliterated ..... I paid 2.99$ for it plus taxes , no delivery fee .. it served me to totally understand the work's plot , but once I know it .. is just fruitcake to send my enemies for Christmas

Format: Audio CD
GIUDITTA, uniquely an "operatic musical comedy," 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 libretto borrows shamelessly from CARMEN, Dietrich's MOROCCO and Romberg's DESERT SONG and anticipates Zarah Leander in LA HABANERA and even Guinness and De Carlo in CAPTAIN'S PARADiSE. Since this is North African cabaret, exotic tango and habanera rhythms (with castanets) pop up improbably among the great Lehar waltzes, the entire ramshackle affair endearingly loopy but redeemed by the glorious music.

Hadley and Bonynge are the main attractions here, with the demanding title role taken by the Australian Deborah Riedel, who is adequate but hardly stellar. The set's major drawback, despite Hadley and sparkling 1996 digital sound, is the awkward and needless English translation prepared by Adam Carstairs, which perverts the precise focus and intent of the German lyrics Lehar set. For Hadley's sake operettaphiles may tune out the dumbed-down texts and simply revel in Lehar's soaring Wiener melodies and rich orchestrations. As Lehar's final score it is the apotheosis of everything that had preceded it, only here featuring trendy new Mediterranean rhythms (and those authentically North African castanets). Long-limbed singing danseuse Giuditta becomes the toast of the booming North Africa cabaret circuit, and poor tenor Octavio, hopelessly smitten with the hot-lips nightclub diva, suffers the very worst of operetta fates--demobbed from the military he becomes a Saharan lounge pianist. One imagines the hapless pair serenading Jane and Paul Bowles in some smoky dive in louche Tangier.
