Sung in English by an impressive cast, the rarely recorded operettas The Czarevitch and The Land of Smiles are sure to delight. The music of Franz Lehar under the direction of Richard Bonynge is a perfect match. Bonynge delights in rediscovering neglected masterpieces and bringing them to the fore. These works are well known for their demanding tenor roles. On these recordings, Jerry Hadley handles the roles with style and ease.
