Movie Reviews

Subtitles? Yes!

"I have seen this DVD and can confirm that it does indeed have subtitles. It is also one of the most delightful operetta productions you will ever see, spectacular but also tasteful, imaginatively staged, and wonderfully sung--Schellenberger and Schukoff are luxury casting vocally, and they also can act and dance (!) and they look great. A treat from beginning to end."
Wonderful Mariza

"I have recently accquired this DVD of Graefin Mariza and concur whole heartedly with the two reviewers who liked it. For the record, it does have English subtitles.
I found the four principals absolutely delightful. They are extraordinary actors, fantastic singers and very good looking people. I especially liked Dagmar Schellenberger; I had never seen or even heard of her before.
I watched this operetta three days in succession, I thought that much of it.
It is a great, and welcome, addition to my operatic DVD collection

Lovely, mostly.

"Lovely choreography, but a brickbat for whoever added the ballet to the Overture. Silly dances may be OK in operetta; stupid dances are not. Likewise the cabaret ballet is superfluous and bad taste. The acting is wonderful. I didn't like Dagmar Schellenberger's high notes, but that's a minority opinion. Nikolai Schukoff is a gem all round. The subtitling of the songs is witty; I suspect a different translator for the dialogue. They shouldn't have cut out the explanation of why Tassilo is popular with the tenant farmers (he persuaded the Countess to give them half of the harvest). Pity they left out the "Mr Turek" song, too. Splendid 1920's costumes; all credit to the girls for managing them in lethally high heels. You get used to the microphones. One to watch many times."
Great singing

"The 2 leads have spectacular voices but the guy who plays Populescu (Harald Serafin) cannot sing at all and is just played for laughs. Also the dancers in animal costumes during the overture has to be one of the most ridiculous things I've ever seen! The subtitles are not that helpful (except for the spoken dialog) because the English is forced to rhyme and loses a lot of the meaning of the original German."
