Never mind the plot ... just enjoy Tauber's voice
7 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

Oliver Desmond [Carl Harbord] has written a new opera and is scouring Europe with Frances [Leonora Corbett] for a tenor to sing the lead. In Vienna they visit a street cafe where Josef Steidler [Richard Tauber] sings each evening for a few coins. They are impressed with this voice discovered in such an unlikely location, and invite him to London to sing in the opera. He is enamoured with Frances and so agrees, but when she agrees to marry Oliver his unrequited passion takes its toll.

OK, so the plot is neither very special or original. But I would need to be incredibly petty to worry about the absence of plot when I can sit back and luxuriate in such a magnificent voice as Tauber's.
