Catalogue Number: 01K040
Label: Phoenix Edition
Description: Composer Binder and singer/playwright Nestroy collaborated on several parodies of famous operas in the mid 19th century with this 1857 version of Wagner's being their most successful. One man plays all the roles and the "orchestra" is a pair of violins, a harmonica and a contra-guitar and there are many humorous disparaging allusions to the world of opera in general.
