Donizetti - Maria Stuarda (complete opera)
ID: OPD7079
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Subcollection: Opera

Gaetano Donizetti (1797-1848) wrote three operas based on the lives of English Queens: Anna Bolena (1830), Maria Stuarda (1834), and Roberto Devereux (1837). None of them stick very close to history; each is treated in such a way as to heighten, exaggerate, or simply invent scenes and situations that might have taken place during the lives of these three fascinating monarchs. Maria Stuarda’s dramatic punch, particularly when the two starring women are front and center, is unique: rivalry is always the stuff of great drama, but rivalry between monarchs is, by definition, on an entirely different-and much higher-level.


Opera d’Oro presents Grand Tier, a deluxe edition of the most beloved Opera d’Oro performances with original artwork by Rafal Olbinski and re-mastered sound! Including a detailed booklet with historic photos, a complete Italian libretto and new original English translation, and an essay on the performance by Robert Levine, this production of Maria Stuarda features Monserrat Caballé and Shirley Verrett at the peak of their considerable vocal powers.

Marie - Beverly Sills
Sulpice - Fernando Corena
Tonio - Grayson Hirst
La Marquise - Muriel Greenspon


The great Beverly Sills is heard in one of her most thrilling roles, the "Daughter of the Regiment" (one of Donizetti's finest comic operas), in this live performance of the original French version. Marie's second-act cabaletta, "Salut à la France," became almost a second national anthem, and is still a favorite choice for French theaters to present on Bastille Day as a gala event.

In 1969, Beverly Sills was at her vocal peak and, as she was particularly skillful in bringing comic roles to life, this is one of her all-time best performances. Legendary comic bass Fernando Corena is a first-class addition to the cast along with tenor Grayson Hirst, a fine artist little-known to recordings. Live performance, 1969.

Roland Hermann, Arleen Auger, Anna Tomowa-Sintow, Donald Grobe, Nikolaus Hillebrand, Trudeliese Schmidt, John van Kesteren, et al., vocal soloists/Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Chorus/Fritz Rieger, conductor
Heinrich Marschner (1795-1861) was a popular Early Romantic opera composer in Germany whose works disappeared for a few decades but have been successfully revived in recent times. Two of his operas, the proto-Wagnerian Hans Heiling, and the spooky Der Vampyr, have had frequent performances and recordings lately, but we do not think there is a better version of Der Vampyr than this one! Recorded live in Munich in 1974, the performance features a number of major singers, something rare in “non-standard” operas. The recorded sound is quite exceptional, too! First performed in 1828, Der Vampyr has a hair-raising Gothic plot about Lord Ruthven, a vampire much like Count Dracula, and his thirst for the blood of young females. The music is much in the vein or Mendelssohn or Weber. Wagner was a great admirer of Marschner and actually quotes one of his themes quite literally in Die Walküre. Ilustration © Rafal Olbinski

Type: CD
Subcollection: Opera



George London, Leonie Rysanek, Josef Greindl, Fritz Uhl, et al., vocal soloists/Bayreuth Festival Orchestra & Chorus/Wolfgang Sawallisch, conductor

Wagner’s early masterpiece is heard in an authoritative, truly classic performance from the composer’s own theater in Bayreuth, Germany, the shrine and Mecca of the true Wagnerite. Some of the greatest singers of the era lead the cast, including Canadian- American bass-baritone George London (1920 -1979), the first American ever to sing the Dutchman at Bayreuth; beloved Viennese soprano Leonie Rysanek (1926-1998), known as the “Queen of Hearts” at the Salzburg Festival; and German bass Josef Greindl (1912-1993), a stalwart of the Deutsche Oper, Berlin, where he sang in 1,369 performances, mostly Wagner! The opera was inspired by Wagner’s reading of a book by Heinrich Heine, Edward Fitzball’s The Flying Dutchman or The Phantom Ship, and Wilhelm Hayff ’s Geisterschiff (Ghost Ship), as well as his own perilous sea voyage in 1839. Der fliegende Holländer is one of the most vivid and colorful of all German Romantic operas, with music that is often hair-raisingly exciting. This masterful performance has long been considered one of the most thrilling ever recorded. Opera d’Oro’s Grand Tier series presents the best-selling Opera d’Oro titles with libretto and deluxe new packaging at mid-price. The Opera d’Oro series has been an unqualified success in the budget category. Now, in response to popular demand, the best titles are being reissued with complete librettos in the original languages and fresh, new English translations, stimulating essays on the operas by eminent music writers, and striking artwork commissioned from Rafal Olbinski. Live performance, 1959.

ID: OPD7027
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Subcollection: Opera

Sherrill Milnes, Christa Ludwig, Carlo Cossutta, Karl Ridderbusch, et al., vocal soloists/Karl Böhm, conductor

Another long-neglected masterpiece, Macbeth is today one of Verdi’s most popular operas following successful revivals in recent years like this dramatic 1970 performance.With a cast like this, and Böhm conducting, it couldn’t lose. Sherrill Milnes, the great American baritone of his era, is in glorious voice here and turns in a magnificent portrayal of the tormented hero. Soprano Christa Ludwig, known better for Lieder and German opera, is perhaps the biggest surprise here, in one of the most thrilling and dramatic portrayals of Lady Macbeth since Maria Callas. The conducting of Karl Böhm also comes in for special praise, as one of the tightest and most dramatic readings ever caught on record. Macbeth was Verdi’s favorite of all his early operas, as evidenced by the great care he took with it even many years after its premiere. The first performance took place on March 14, 1847 and was warmly applauded. Years later, however, Verdi heavily revised and even partly recomposed Macbeth, and this version, first given in Paris at the Théâtre Lyrique on April 19, 1865, is the one always heard today.

“Macbeth has been well presented on discs, but this performance…should be held in the greatest esteem and surpasses the others in overall intensity and theatricality…Böhm’s orchestra catches the opera’s brooding dark tone ideally. Christa Ludwig is in radiant voice, singing with such charisma that she is practically visible…[Sherril Milnes’s] warm resonant voice, with its remarkable, secure upper extension is simply glorious, and he truly gets under the skin of this complex character…” - ROBERT LEVINE
