Wagner said this early-Romantic gem was the most German of German operas. Its irresistible mix of colorful folklore, the spooky supernatural, a tender romance, and the passionate struggle between good and evil are all captured in Weber's tuneful and dramatic score. The cast in this rare U.S. performance is sensational: Sándor Kónya as our hero, the forester Max, who must win a shooting contest in order to marry his beloved Agathe (the ravishing Pilar Lorengar), despite the dark plotting of Caspar (Gerd Feldhoff)

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

With a cast like this you can't help falling in love all over again with The barber of Seville.
