The performances are effervescent.

If you like operettas that move along briskly and have a very melodious score, you’ll enjoy this. © 2016 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

…the star of the performance is Daniel Behle in the role of Roland. …his voice [is] ‘mellifluous, agile, beautiful, technically spotless and with enough heft to make his top notes ring out’.

A pleasant surprise. © 2016 MusicWeb International Read complete review

Christie Grimstad, February 2016

Daniel Behle’s Roland gets a muzzy handle around the legal issues through his buttery and rounded tenor delivery. His amour, Anna Gratwohl (Anneli Pfeffer), has amiable effervescence and pliability. In concert with the WDR Radio Choir, they delightfully begin to spin Act I to a close with the Tyroleanesque “Sie gepriesen, du lauschige Nacht” (contrast Behle to a more richly hued Hermann Prey) that features Pfeffer’s sustained penultimate high B-Flat, later reaching to a high C. Exceptionally difficult, yet exceptionally perfect. © 2016 Read complete review, February 2016

All the singers are fine if scarcely outstanding: they fill their roles very well, with the interplay between two feckless lieutenants (Boris Leisenheimer and Dominik Wortig), whose uniforms are stolen by the vagabonds (Thomas Dewald and Maria Leyer), being particularly well done. © 2016 Read complete review
