 Richard Bonynge


Apart from a marvellously varied score, one which does not contain a single weak number, Die Csárdásfürstin benefits from an expertly constructed libretto by Leo Stein and Bela Jenbach. The characters are vividly etched, the comic dialogue is still genuinely funny, and the volte face which transforms doom and gloom into a happy ending is a classic of its kind. The mainspring of the plot, a mésalliance between aristocrat and showgirl, may seem today like something which could only exist in the pages of operetta, but that is far from true; in London society, for instance, many an eyebrow was raised when the Marquis of Headfort took as his bride a delectable Gaiety Girl named Rosie Boote The basic ambience of The Gypsy Princess is the world of what in London were called the Stage Door Johnnies, and though it may be tempting today to dismiss them as a bunch of idle wastrels it is worth remembering how many of them, whether from London, Vienna or Budapest, had, by November 1918, sacrificed their lives. 

 "Die Csárdáfürstin tells an improbable tale of the mismatch between a showgirl, Sylva, and an aristocrat, Prince Edwin. Richard Bonynge conducts a lively, beautifully sprung performance, made the more idiomatic by using an East European orchestra. Yvonne Kenny as Sylva gives a characterful, idiomatic performance, well supported by singers very much in the operetta tradition, and by Michael Roider as Edwin and Mojca Erdmann and Marko Kathol as the second couple. Well produced, the numbers are introduced by a sprinkling of dialogue. The first-rate sound brings out the beauty of Kálmán’s orchestration."   ***
