Die Nummer eins unter den Operetten schildert Lug und Trug um das Familienleben des Rentiers Gabriel von Eisenstein und seiner Frau Rosalinde. Eine fein gesponnene Intrige - von Eisensteins "Freund" Dr. Falke erdacht - lässt den untreuen Ehemann Eisenstein bei einem pompösen Fest des superreichen Prinzen Orlofsky auf seine Kosten kommen. Nach einer rauschenden Ballnacht, bei der alle handelnden Personen in falschen Identitäten auftreten, gibt es aber ein böses Erwachen, denn Rosalinde lässt sich nicht ungestraft düpieren

ATMA Classique is reissuing one of Les Violons du Roy's seminal discs: the orchestra's recording of Mozart's Requiem as revised and completed by Robert D. Levin. The soloists are Karina Gauvin, Marie-Nicole Lemieux, John Tessier, and Nathan Berg. Bernard Labadie conducts Les Violons du Roy and the choir of La Chapelle de Québec. This recording was originally released on the Dorian label in 2002, and won the JUNO Award for Best Classical Album of the year in the vocal or choral performance category. This recording of Mozart's Requiem is especially poignant, as it was made in Troy, NewYork in the week following the September 11 attacks in 2001.The recording captures the emotion and immediacy of that special performance, which was later featured on CBC Television's Opening Night. The Globe & Mail wrote about "an appreciation of the transcendent aspects of the Requiem as a work of art that is about death, survival and the possibility of an afterlife. There is the magnificence of the music, so often used to solemnly mark terrible tragedy and bring solace."
