Format: CD

A unique take on the Romeo and Juliet story, set as singspiel in 3 act. Out of print!
A czech composer of the classical period, Benda spent most of his life composing in Germany. His take on the Shakespeare's play is unique to say the least, complete with a happy ending. If you want to explore 18th century opera by other composers than the major, dominant figures, then this is a valuable set.
