With a terrific cast including Maria Bengtsson and Katharina Magiera, and under the baton of Sebastian Weigle, Oehms Classics and Opera Frankfurt bring back to life a nearly forgotten jewel of comic opera in the 19th century. After the premiere at the Viennese Karntnertortheater in 1847, Friedrich von Flotow’s Martha, or The Market at Richmond became for nearly half a century one of the most popular operas in Europe.

Full of charming melodies and with a plot as hilarious as it is racy, Martha is the story of bored Lady Harriet Durham and her friend Nancy, who disguise themselves as Martha and Julia and travel to the servant’s fair of Richmond, where they find not only a job, but also true love. It is an enchanting example of 1850s civic opera and also Friedrich von Flotow’s wonderful light-hearted music.
