NICO DOSTAL (1895-1981): Prinzessin Nofretete.
Catalogue Number: 12T040
Label: Rondeau Production
Description: The year is 1912 and there is sensational news from Egypt: Nefertiti’s burial chamber found! However, Dostal’s operetta is not primarily about archaeology. Clothed in humorous dialogues and catchy songs, we witness a colourful cavalcade of tour guides, historians, pharaohs, soothsayers, thieves, and palace guards as they are caught up in an intricate web of intrigues — in Ancient Egypt as well as the present. Live recording of its first performance since its premiere in 1936. 2 CDs. No libretto. Lilli Wünscher, Angela Mehling (sopranos), Milko Milev (baritone), Jeffery Krueger (tenor), Chorus and Orchestra of Musikalische Komödie Leipzig; Stefan Klingele.
