    They also had the one with Shirley Verrett but the disks were somewhat scratched, so I felt $2 was not warranted. Today it will be $1 but I won't be getting over there as it is not near home. This will do though as I also have the sets with Domingo/Meier and the Cossotto set. Not an opera that has taken my by storm--yet.

    I have over four dozen recordings of the Ninth, but this one is a can't-pass-up recording with
    Camilla Nylund (soprano), Iris Vermillion (alto), Jonas Kaufmann (tenor), Franz-Josef Selig (bass)

    $4.42 shipped. No image on ebay listing but the bar code traced to this set which is dated sound but quite beautiful voices.
    Sound clips at Amazon.

    That is quite probably the best ever recording of Nabucco! IMHO of course!

    The recording art is similar to the Gardelli recording with Elena Suliotis, which many consider to be the reference recording of this opera - but a very different cast (which isn't to suggest that the Muti is not, indeed, the best ever recording of Nabucco!):

    I haven't heard the Muti, so need to put it on my list.

    Ooops, yes I got them mixed up. It's the Gardelli which is the best. (IMO)

    Think this is now my favorite Russian opera. This is my fourth DVD of Eugene:
