Understanding that this was entertainment for the second half of the 19th century (no recordings, TV , etc) allows for some appreciation of what this short operetta is. The plot is quite silly, the customs are too and the stage concept, while appearing to have some interesting aspects, is still silly. The music numbers are very nice, cheerful and in line with Offenbach’s best music. The music is the essence of this piece, and it is where most of the creative art is. Enjoy it.
The video (Blu-Ray) and sound recordings are very good. The singers/actors/dancers are good and up to the roles and director’s design. In summary, an enjoyable 45 minutes of good music.
