This is a wonderful and rare recording of Les Brigands, a comic opera with lilting, infectious melodies. Why it's not better known and performed, I don't know. The sound quality and clarity of voices is good. The only negative was that I, too, initially could not find the libretto on the EMI web site. However, someone from our great Amazon community sent me this link and - voila! - it has the full libretto in multiple languages available for free as a PDF:

Since my French is rudimentary, the English libretto has really enhanced my listening pleasure. Bottom line: Offenbach, the Lyons Opera and EMI deliver! A delightful investment!

Update 6/19/11 re the ellipses (... above): I don't know why Amazon is blocking this link, which is, after all, part of the product it's selling.

EMI claims on the back of this set that the full libretto is available for download on their website. This is not the case! It is nowhere to be found! I advise everyone who buys this release to post a comment on the EMI website demanding that they stand by their word and make the libreto available to everyone who purchases this CD. Much of Offenbach's comedy depends on the fabulously witty texts. With no libretto, one is missing half the fun!
