He does get to speak the final lines of act 3 with Teresa and while I realise that the disc is designed for repeat listening and certainly doesn't need exaggeration, perhaps he could sound a little more romantic as he leads up to ' Teresa Its the great 'ah' moment when the Maid finally gets her man after all the intrigues.
Dialogue can be tricky on a recording. All in all an excellent recording with fine choral singing and orchestral playing. It is really worth investing in this recording to get to know Fraser - Simson's finely crafted score. As was customary at that time one or two songs were contributed - in this case by James W Tate who was the stepfather of Jose Collins , the original Teresa who was so associated with the role that it could have run forever had she not decided to call it a day at performances.
It would be great if one of our regional theatres - say the Northcott in Exeter which once made a speciality of reviving operetta type musicals - could give us a professional production of ' Maid of the Mountains. Amateur societies do investigate this piece which has been out of the repertoire for far too long.
One person found this helpful. I had always been led to believe that this was a hopelessly outdated inferior operetta from the pages of music history. What a gem! This recording certainly gives The Maid her full due and what a wonderful score. Ok, she may nit run for a performances in a modern revival , but stranger things have happened Look at "Irene"!. Handled sensitively The Maid could be a great success and allow a new audience the pleasure of experiencing a great show.
Now off to explore "Merrie England" and "The Geisha". And where is the first full recording if "Chu Chin Chow"? Setting a theatre record run which stood for 40 years can't be a bad show?
This recording is a delight to listen to. The rich score with it's well known numbers is a wonder to listen to and still captures the dramatic tension of the plot all these years after it's first London outing.
The singing is wonderful, and the less known comedy numbers are a treat with their amusing lyrics. The New London Orchestra and Chorus have pulled out all the stops and created a a delight for fans of early musical operettas.
Well worth a revival. Good service from this firm and a wonderful CD. I enjoyed listening to "maid of the Mountain". I haven't heard it since the late 60's. A Musical Society in Dublin performed it as part of their bi-annual shows. Fast shipping. Thank you! Other Sellers on Amazon. Sold by: MovieMars-CDs. Sold by: buy-you-books.
