    While I am partial to the recording with Marilyn Horne, this really is very well done.

    Very nice, but Martina Arroyo is no Leontyne Price.

    NOT for the faint hearted.

    Though thoroughly recommended.

    You will need a cuppa after this.

    (Actually in my case a couple of pints of Guiness)

    I am not sure if it was good or bad that I did not see this at ROH.

    I do not know if it was the music, the story, my imagination or all or some of those combined but this is both disturbing and wonderful.

    I could not type immediately after listening to this.

    Somehow blasphemy would just be wrong.

    Lovely opera and good recording. A gem at GBP 5 during the Naxos promotion at Presto Classical earlier this year. I look forward to other operas by Gretry being performed and recorded. I am considering La Caravane du Caire, Zémire et Azor and Guillaume Tell.

    Anyone out there know of any other good recordings?

    Ettore Bastianini really is the most wonderful Posa.

    Just a couple days ago I mentioned here that he was a magnificent Di Luna (Trovatore) died very young but fortunately we have many great recordings from 1955-65 to hear his work

    Because I must own all things Callas I recently purchased this new released boxset of live Verdi recordings, I have them all individually and these are previous remasters.

    Right now listening to the great Callas Macbeth 1952 live La Scala

    So do you mean you've purchased records you already have but just packaged differently?

    Yes exactly, for instance I have 3 complete studio boxsets plus the same recordings in their individual EMI boxsets with full booklets

    Complete Boxsets

    Individual Opera Boxsets


    Soon I will have 4 complete studio boxsets when original artwork remaster set is released in September
    (actually I will definitely sell the "blue" cheapo boxset when this arrives)

    Another wonderful opera with a very good cast including the talked about Raffaella Milanesi as the very beautiful Aristea.


    Though something has just dawned on me. Whilst it may be painfully obvious to all; this member "Clayton" just says he likes anything he listens to. I wouldn't take his recommendations with a pinch of salt. I would take enough salt to brine the entire North Atlantic stock of sardines.
