Notes
The first pressing of this CD had errors in THE MERRY WIDOW half; track 3 ("Maxim's") was reversed with track 9 (Finale Act II) and, instead of the Act Three Finale, track 12 was an alternate take of track 11 ("I Love You So"/"The Merry Widow Waltz") with the finale omitted. These errors were corrected in the second pressing.
