Zigeunerliebe[’s]…scenery and costumes are lavish—a feast for the eye. The choir and dancers shine.
Der Graf von Luxembourg…is a delightful film…
The costumes are gorgeous, lighting and sets attractive and the acting, for the most part, good…Eberhard Wächter in the title role, rises with aplomb to its demanding part, the tessitura of which straddles baritone and tenor registers. Lilian Sukis as Angèle is beautiful and sophisticated, her golden soprano marvellously controlled across her range particularly in its high register. Enchanting.
This film version of Paganini is a very creditable stab at a glittering operetta.
Gorgeous melodies, glittering production. © 2013 MusicWeb International Read complete review
