MP3 Version - Recording is created by the Comic Opera Guild, Ann Arbor, MI, a not-for-profit company formed in 1973 with the mission to explore and help promote interest in the comic opera art form.
This recording is of the 1908/1909 operetta Algeria/Rose of Algeria written by Glen McDonough (Babes librettist) and Victor Herbert (composer) and produced on August 31, 1908 at the Broadway Theatre in NYC. The operetta only two distinct lives: 1) as Algeria in 1908 and as 2) Rose of Algeria in 1909. The music is essential the same in both versions with only the libretto undergoing revision.
Adam Aceto and Patrick Johnson are at the two pianos. Music was restored and conducted by Adam Aceto. Album cover and program notes come in the zip file containing the MP3 files. Because of the size of the files
