Offenbach's ladies

Chamber Music
Although the technical vocal feats of Eurydice in Orphée aux Enfers are incredibly well known, few people are aware that many other works by Offenbach contain virtuoso roles which provide a varied overview of the vocal skills of the 19th-century “coloratura soprano”. Chantal Santon Jeffery, accompanied by the Ensemble Contraste, tackles these challenges brilliantly, transforming them into spectacular expressions of the Romantic soul.
