SINGER of THE WEEK

CLAUDIA NOVIKOVA
(1895-1968)

Although she had a very long and successful career performing operettas in the Soviet Union, soprano Claudia Novikova made only 9 recordings. Her recording of "Ah, quel diner" a.k.a The Tipsy Song from Offenbach's LA PERICHOLE is legendary. Almost as much fun and perhaps even more astonishing techniquewise, "The Song of the Laugh" was interpolated into performances of Sidney Jones' operetta, THE GEISHA, to highlight her unique and inimitably delightful gifts. Enjoy!.
