German Globolinks falls short of Houston's 1972 production

(3 out of 5 stars)
"Help! Help! The Globolinks is a novelty opera with some good Menotti music in it. This German production was not up to the Houston Grand Opera presentation in 1972. The Hamburg State Opera staging featured two or three well-known singers, including Franz Grundheber. The movement of the globolinks was not particularly well-done.
The opening in Houston had featured a Houston Police Department cruiser racing onto the stage with lights flashing and sirens wailing. That is a tough act to follow."
