Romberg: Maytime Customer Reviews
||Important but disappointing|
Romberg: Maytime It is wonderful to finally have a recording of this important American classic. Romberg: Maytime The live performance recording is more than adequately sung and gives a good sense of the music which is charming but not Romberg's best. However, Ohio Light Opera chose to present the piece with a rewritten libretto that relocates the action from New York City to New Orleans and environs, thus distorting the original intentions. Also the roles of the two lovers and their grandchildren, originally played by one pair of actors, are here split between an older pair and a younger pair, also distoring the original intent. since we are not likely to get another recording of this work, I recommend it for operetta fans, but it could have been better. Also, if the dialogue had been omitted, the music would probably fit on on one CD.
