Program Notes

Isabella, a comic opera in one act, was first performed at Carl Theater in Vienna on the 5th of November 1869. The librettist was Joseph Weyl, a well-known poet who also collaborated with Johann Strauss. The story is conveyed by a Spanish flavour in the introduction of the overture. This is interrupted by a brief lyrical bassoon solo, before moving into a brilliant march. An inevitable Viennese waltz is unfolded before the return to the Spanish colour.
