Lehar and Richard Tauber

Lehar's collaboration with tenor Richard Tauber began at a point in the composer's career when he desperately needed a new direction. The sequence of operettas that followed, went a long way towards reaching the culmination of Lehar's ambitions with the genre. Presented by Donald Macleod.
