"This is a very great performance of 'The Dutchman' sabotaged by the really bad acetate surface noise. Recorded live in Buenos Aires in 1936, it is very fast paced and dramatic. The singing of Alexander Kipnis as Daland, Marjorie Lawrence as Senta and Fred Destal as The Dutchman could hardly be better. The smaller rôles are also well handled. Unfortunately because of the sound quality, it can really be recommended only to those who are well used to historic recordings. A pity, the performance is very likeable."
