At The Opera, Strauss Jr. Der Zigeunerbaron (The Gypsy Baron) August 8, 2015

  

The Gypsy Baron is an operetta in three acts by Johann Strauss II which premiered on October 24, 1885. Its libretto was by the author Ignaz Schnitzer and in turn was based on Sáffi by Mór Jókai. During the composer's lifetime, the operetta enjoyed great success, second only to the popularity of Die Fledermaus.  The story, of the marriage of a landowner (returned from exile) and a gypsy girl who is revealed as the daughter of a Turkish Pasha, and the rightful owner of a hidden treasure, involves a fortune-telling Romany Queen, a self-important Mayor, a rascally Commissioner, a Military Governor, a band of Gypsies and a troop of Hussars. This 1986 recording stars Julia Varady and Walter Berry. Willi Boskovsky conducts.
