Product Description

CD82469 Offenbach's Robinson Crusoe

France Musique's regular summer operetta slot included in its Saturday 7 August 2010 outing a 1980 recording of Offenbach's 1867 opéra comique Robinson Crusoé.

A rare complete performance, it lasts two and a half hours which may go some way to explain why it wasn't staged between its relatively successful 1867 run and a Camden Festival performance in 1973.

The cast isn't listed on France Musique's website and I didn't trust myself to spell the names correctly so I've included the announcer Jean-Christophe Keck's run through as a tiny audio file.

Keck, by the way, is producing an edition of Offenbach's works for Boosey and Hawkes (see A word of warning about the site, though. It's one of these ghastly Internet sites which starts playing music the second you get to it. If you happen to be recording anything from the web or otherwise, it'll botch it up for you.

The programme included three other highly enjoyable items in addition to the operetta. None are commercially available.

Jacques Offenbach - Robinson Crusoé, par les solistes, les chœurs et le nouvel orchestre Philarmonique de Radio France cond. Jean-Pierre Marty. Recorded 26 March 1980 Archive INA – non commercialisée
