This release has been sourced from the Richard Itter archive. The collection is very important for collectors because it has never been released before onto the market. Harold Rosenthal, editor of Opera Magazine, described the staged performance at London's Royal Festival Hall in September 1954 as 'sheer delight' and went on to praise an exceptionally strong Viennese cast, many of whose members had long associations not just with the Vienna State Opera but with the city itself.
