La vie parisienne by Jacques Offenbach( )

16 editions published between 1976 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offenbach hielt mit seiner Operette Pariser Leben, deren Stoff ihm das Paris zur Zeit der großen Weltausstellung 1867 lieferte, seinen Zeitgenossen einen Zerrspiegel vor und gab die Stadt der Lebewelt und der tollen Amüsements und ihre fremdländischen Besucher unverhüllt dem Gelächter und dem Spott preis. Die Musik ist reich an köstlichen Einfällen, in origineller Melodik und tänzerischer Rhythmik. - Der gekürzte Live-Mitschnitt der Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz in Berlin unter Sylvain Cambreling, der auch mit für eine neue Textfassung verantwortlich zeichnet, ist eine glänzende Neueinspielung, die hörbar "vom großen Spaß aller an dieser Produktion" kündet (Fono forum 8/99).
