- The Merry Widow (highlights)
Performed by Renée Fleming, soprano, and Christopher Maltman
The Saxon State Opera Choir of Dresden and the Staatskapelle Dresden are conducted by Christian Thielemann
This is the first of a series of New Year’s Eve Concerts from the famous Dresden State Opera. Deutsche Grammophon created a long-term association with Christian Thielemann, the Staatskapelle Dresden and with Unitel/Classica to brand a new series of CDs and DVDs, which promise to provide some great music for us.
Christian Thielemann, as Principal Conductor of Staatskapelle Dresden, brings his expertise to Lehár’s Opera “The Merry Widow”, with the American soprano Renée Fleming in the title role.
Here’s a video of Ms. Fleming in the Merry Widow:
