The Opera Quarterly “...Nightingale's recording does an excellent job of making this most familiar of Viennese operetta scores seem as fresh and sparkling as a just-poured glass of vintage champagne. Friedrich Haider's conducting is light and stylish, with just enough swing in the big tunes and dramatic punch in the ensembles to keep the listener enthralled, no matter how trite the fleeting phrase. Haider's tasteful use of rubato, his flair for picking tempos that allow the singers to project the sometimes tricky text and negotiate the awkward intervals, and his Harnoncourt-like ability to keep instrumental timbres differentiated all bear witness to a real appreciation for the music and an uncommon ability to make it sound greater than the sum of its parts”
