Slight wear on edges, not so much from use as storage. Great shape inside, no tears.
The collection is beautifully performed and includes favorites like The Merry Widow, Show Boat, and Roberta. There are also some lesser known favorites: Mlle. Modiste, Blossom Time, and The Red Mill, to name just a few, that deserve a much greater audience.
TREASURY OF GREAT OPERETTAS was first released as a 9-Lp set in 1963. Conductor Lehman Engle recalled the recording sessions on the summer of 1962 as being a joy. There was no pressure, just a determination to make this album the finest possible collection of condensed operettas. The cast included opera singers (Anna Moffo, Jeanette Scovotti, Sara Mae Endich) and Broadway performers (Peter Palmer, Avon Long) with a full orchestra and chorus.

Each operetta was sensibly condensed to fill one LP side- aprroximately 23 minutes. In all there were 18 in the original set (A U.K. edition was 12 Lp's with 24 operettas.)
Not every show is technically an operettas: Some were extravaganzas (Victor Herbert's BABES IN TOYLAND), some were musical plays (SHOW BOAT) or musical comedies (NO NO NANETTE, ROBERTA), while Gershwin's PORGY AND BESS was created as a folk opera.

DIE FLEDERMAUS (available on CD in RD Johann Strauss album)
MLLE. MODISTE
THE MERRY WIDOW (available in CD set)
