“There is more of Spain in Offenbach’s brain than in Spain itself,” said a journalist entranced by Maître Péronilla. Understandably so, given the charm and humor of this operetta in which no fewer than twenty-two characters are kept busy unravelling a preposterously complicated love story, made all the better by a libretto penned by the composer himself. Castanets, tambourines and triangle merrily punctuate one of Offenbach’s last scores, which multiplies impressive vocal ensembles while not renouncing intimate numbers of great poetry.

This world premiere recording features specialists of this repertory such as Éric Huchet and Loïc Félix, but also opera singers more unexpected in this context, including Véronique Gens, who audibly delight in letting their hair down in such joyful company, ably supported by the talents of the Orchestre National de France and the Chœur de Radio France.
