Hadley, Gutafson, Richard Bonynge/English Chamber Orchestra Sung in English, this version of Lehar's operetta has special appeal in the United States, and the fact that it is fit onto a single CD is also an attractive feature. Jerry Hadley's performance as the Prince isn't as impressive as Gedda's, but Bonynge's conducting brings out the lush beauty of the score in full. ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi
