Jacques Offenbach's more than 100 stage works are an endless treasure trove of vocal highlights with highly different musical moods and lyrical themes. Two new volumes in the OEK Edition are now available for Mezzo-Soprano and Soprano voices.

The four-part collection arranged according to voice category shows a rather unknown, romantic side of Offenbach. Apart from rediscovered works and first editions, however, the collection is not complete without some of his unrivalled hits.

Apart from trouvailles from "Les Bavards", "Maître Péronilla" and "Robinson Crusoé", the volume for mezzo-soprano also contains some of those crowd-pullers the composer wrote for his most famous star, the singer Hortense Schneider. But Périchole, the Beautiful Helen or the Grand Duchess of Gerolstein show definitely not only their burlesque side, but also their thoughtful one here. And in Fantasio's bitter-sweet "Ballad to the Moon", Offenbach paints his own portrait as a melancholic in a jester's costume.
