    Default Die Fledermaus

    I am searching for a recording of Johann Strauss' opera 'Die Fledermaus' WITHOUT vocals, just the orchestra. Does anyone know of where I could find this or anyone that might help me? Many thanks Mo

    Not trying to be nosey, but why exactly would you want an opera recording without voices?

    Maybe he/she prefers instrumental music rather than opera lyrics? There are so many possible answers to this question...We'll just have to wait till this mystery is solved...hehe

    If what you're looking for is a way to practice your own vocals, there is a Music Minus One of highlights from Fledermaus:

    If you're looking for a pleasurable listening experience, we can assume this is not at the top of the pack.

    Morgan's no longer around, but maybe he was put off by hearing first time the ridiculous falsetto of Ivan Rebroff in Carlos Kleiber's otherwise excellent recording.
