Renata Scotto, Carlo Bergonzi, Carlo Cava, Giuseppe Taddei, et al: vocal soloists / Orchestra & Chorus of Maggio Musicale Fiorentino /Gianandrea Gavazzeni: conductor

The Elixir of Love was the result of a commission from a panicked Milanese impresario in 1832. He needed a new opera to replace one that had fallen through, and who better to go to than Donizetti, the man who was known to churn out an entirely new opera in two weeks? The premiere took place on schedule on May 12, 1832. L’elisir d’amore was an instant hit, running for thirty-two further consecutive performances. Well over a century and a half later, it is still going strong-still funny, still melodious, and still bringing down the house. Opera d’Oro’s Grand Tier series presents the best-selling Opera d’Oro titles with libretto and deluxe new packaging at mid-price! Grand Tier reissues the best titles with complete librettos in the original languages and fresh new English translations; stimulating essays on the operas by eminent writers on music; and striking artwork commissioned from Rafal Olbinski. Live performance, Florence, Italy, 1967.

Mirella Freni, Luciano Pavarotti, Sesto Bruscantini, Bonaldo Giaiotti, et al.: vocal soloists / RAI Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, Rome / Riccardo Muti: conductor

Opera d’Oro’s Grand Tier series presents the best-selling Opera d’Oro titles with deluxe new packaging at mid-price! This 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 writers on music, and striking artwork commissioned from Rafal Olbinski. This is one of the finest recordings of Bellini’s last, and in some ways greatest, opera. Luciano Pavarotti seldom sang the role of Arturo, and this is one of his rare appearances on disc in this role. Most of the traditional cuts are restored in this recording. Mirella Freni is in her best form, and emotionally communicative. Riccardo Muti is one of the finest conductors of Italian opera in recent times. The premiere of I puritani in Paris in 1835 gave Bellini the greatest triumph of his career. The audience cheered to the extent that the composer later wrote “The French had all gone mad.” Live broadcast, Rome, July 8,1969.

Leonie Rysanek, Bernd Aldenhoff, Annelies Kupper, Hermann Uhde, Ira Malaniuk, et al.: vocal soloists / Bavarian State Opera Orchestra and Chorus / Joseph Keilberth: conductor

Leonie Rysanek was one of the greatest Wagner-and-Strauss sopranos of recent times and many of her recordings are considered definitive. Certainly that description applies to this legendary performance, which most critics agree has never been surpassed. This is the only available recording of Strauss’s 1933 revised version of the opera, which has some significant changes in Act II. All other recordings are of the 1928 original. Strauss himself preferred the revised version! Long one of Strauss’s least-performed operas, partly because of the extraordinary staging demands-including a singing seashell (!)-The Egyptian Helen has recently had a great surge in popularity, especially after an acclaimed Metropolitan Opera production. The collaboration of composer Richard Strauss and librettist Hugo von Hofmannsthal was one of the greatest in music history, along with that of Mozart and Da Ponte, and out of their six collaborations, Hofmannsthal himself considered this his best text. Live performance, Monaco, August 10, 1956.
