AllMusic Review by

Franz Lehar/Vienna Radio Orchestra. Lehar's final new opera was special for him, as the only work he ever wrote for the Vienna State Opera. The performance here is carried off with much feeling and a great deal of affection, and this compares favorably with the modern version on EMI. The sound is considerably sharper and crisper than the 1942 recording date would indicate, especially for a radio broadcast.
