THEATRE BEL-ETAGE conducted by Mart Sander

Lionel Monckton was a leading composer of stage musical or operetta in the early 20th century. His "Arcadians" has retained a great deal of popularity as have some songs from other shows. His music is infectious, tuneful and memorable, as demonstrated by these three condensed shows.

Theatre Bel-Etage is a leading company in Estonia, who have dedicated themselves to the English stage musical and "Variety" style of Victorian and Edwardian days. Even though not English themselves they have created a fine reputation, even performing Sullivan's "Cox and Box" in London to great acclaim.

Soloists: Pirjo Levandi, Jeanne Sevchenco, Mart Sander, Mariliina von Uexkull, Julie Lill, Oliver Kuusik and Annika Tönuri, with the Orchestra and Chorus, conducted by Mart Sander

CD playing time: 69:06
