    Clayton, if you ever have the chance, seek also the earlier version conducted by Alberto Erede, helming the Coro e orchestra dell'Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome. The same headliners, but imo del Monaco and Tebaldi in even better voice (or at least the recording which is London (Decca, by another name??) has them sounding better. I don't hear much about Erede nowadays, but he was a good Verdian. Mono version, though, so YMMV.
    Never try to teach a pig to sing. You will waste your time and you will annoy the pig.

    Dark and magnificent. Sitting in the glorious morning sunshine, I still have shivers sent through my body. I didn't know this kind of Donizetti opera existed.

    My flight flew over the UK - Scotland, anyway, on 2/14 - and they had to stop beverage service due to the severe turbulence, and made everyone batten the hatches. Jeez. Suspending beverage service is inhuman.

    This is one of my new acquisitions. Recorded during a live performance in Tokyo in August, 1971, I thought it might have been past the point of no return for La Suliotis, but decided it was worth the risk. I think I can tell the difference in her voice as she sounds a good deal more restrained than in her Verdi roles - though that might be because of her approach to bel canto. I like the recording - she might have been on the downside of her career, but still gives a compelling performance, and the other leads and conducting are great:

    There exists a Suliotis studio Norma but generally only available as a Vinyl LP, perhaps now as digital download? Shame it is not widely available on reduced price CD set by Decca......

    We need turnipoverlord to post HD needledrop version on youtube like his many Callas vinyls

    This is exactly why I was thinking about a turntable. If I ever find this record in my record shop, I think I would buy the turntable...

    NO, No no no!

    It is part of the Baroque Opera Box collection!

    Whaaaa! USD 465!!!!!!

    The recording in the box collection does not come with this cover box. Just a plain cover. Speaking as a box nut (my box obsession is so much, I can not talk about it frankly in public), 465 is a bit much even for me...

    The most I have paid for a premium for an original box so far is USD 70.

    I have seen CDs of this on the interweb by private vendors but am worried about the license and also the quality.

    I am only going to buy it from a vendor I trust.

    If any recording came about, I thought you might be one of the first to know...

    I would note, for the record (so to speak..) that the sound itself on the Myto Norma is actually very good (and I get very impatient with lousy sound). The problem I had this morning, which is extremely annoying, is skips. The music stops for several seconds, then starts again. I have no clue what that is about - and the CD, while not cheap at around $30 (Euro 21) should not have that kind of issue.

    I did not notice this. I am going to have to have another listen.

    I was going to anyway...
    but was a bit embarrassed that it might be interpreted as Clayton following Hoffmann again

    Now I have an excuse.
