P.D.Q. Bach - The Abduction of Figaro
VAI DVD 4251, $39.95

The master of musical parody, Professor Peter Schickele, brings us a complete opera by P.D.Q. Bach, a man who has been called a “pimple on the face of music,” “the worst musician ever to have trod organ pedals,” and “the most dangerous musician since Nero.” This fully-staged complete live performance features the Chorus, Corpse [sic] de Ballet, and Orchestra of the Minnesota Opera under the direction of Professor Schickele. “A wonderfully funny show” — Musical America. “A crazed pastiche . . . gags – millions of them.” — The New York Times. Color, Stereo, 144 minutes, USA, 1984
