    for the 1961 live, good sound. Not excellent, just good but the music comes through very well.

    An old classic for my walk this afternoon. A superb recording; Moffo in great voice as are all the principals.

    It is apparent that the love of vinyl is still very much around; I saw that the showpiece of the La Scala Memories set (La Traviata 1956, Maria Callas) was the only one sold in a big red box. It was EUR 250 as opposed to the rest of the collection that was about EUR 30 so I did not buy that one.

    I love the boxes with the lavish libretto's ,the Carmen is stunning as are the early Decca recordings, as you know I adore Joan Sutherland and they are special, all with beautiful reproductions of the Bonynge collection of paintings from singers and costumes from the past.

    The records were so much more than the CDs of today. They were so much more special (admittedly also so much more expensive).

    Not only is this an excellent recording but Harmonia Mundi released this series in the CD book format. For the Monteverdi fan the whole series is a must. The books are really very good with a lot of writing on the music with pictures and diagrams and of course full text too. They are also VERY reasonable price with Presto Classical selling for GBP 13.20.

    Some stage noise as it is live performances but little and no way enough to distract from some stunning singing.

    What about the opera itself? I don't know it, and I'm always interested in another telling of my favorite Antiquity story. Is it good?

    Yes it is a good opera and I am surprised I could only find this production.

    It has good exploration of the characters that are developed well. It has many good arias and some very good. It has few recitatives and a nice continuity.
