February 11, 2019Yonel Buldrini

March 2017 | Opera magazine

According to operabase.com, four of Suppé’s operettas have received stage productions over the last five years, but A Trip to Africa—to use the English title the authors of this monograph prefer— was not one of them.

A vocal score, in German and Italian, was published.
