Among Rossini’s numerous comic operas, La Cenerentola (1817) has long held a place second only to The Barber of Seville. In fact, for many years it was often more popular than The Barber, until its extreme vocal difficulties became too much for a generation of singers not trained in the Rossini style, and its fantastic atmosphere fell afoul of a preference for verismo, the school of realism. In recent years, the revival of the bel canto style and intense interest in resurrecting authentic Rossini manuscripts has brought about a happy new lease on life for La Cenerentola, which once again is rivaling The Barber in popularity. The libretto by Jacopo Ferretti, though based on the Cinderella fairy tale as told by Charles Perrault, is far different in tone. Rossini and Ferretti agreed to suppress the supernatural themes and create a comedy of manners steeped in irony. This live performance, recorded in Naples in 1958, is one of the finest of its era, with a virtual all-star cast thoroughly schooled in the Rossini style.

Mariano Stabile, Renata Tebaldi, Cesare Valletti, et al.: vocal soloists / La Scala Orchestra and Chorus / Victor de Sabata: conductor

Verdi’s last opera, written when he was approaching eighty, was only the second comedy of his long career, following the ill-fated Un giorno di regno of fifty years before. His friend and collaborator Arrigo Boito, who had with some difficulty talked him into composing Otello several years earlier, now had an easier time convincing him to crown his glory with one more tribute to his beloved Shakespeare. The three principals are all famous portrayers of their roles, aided by an outstanding supporting cast. Mariano Stabile was a veteran Italian basso buffo who had the role of Falstaff in his belly, if not his bones. Renata Tebaldi was the most famous Italian lyric soprano of her era and she remains, along with Maria Callas, the most loved soprano of recent years. Cesare Valletti was a tenore di grazia, a tenor with a light, flexible head voice of exquisite beauty. Live performance, Milan, May 26, 1951.

Franco Corelli, Tito Gobbi, Gigliola Frazzoni, et al.: vocal soloists / Orchestra and Chorus of La Scala, Milan / Antonino Votto: conductor

Live performance, Milan, April 4, 1956. Puccini made a big hit with the American public when his new opera, The Girl of the Golden West, had its fi rst performance, not in Italy but at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, with Emmy Destinn and Enrico Caruso in the leading roles, and Toscanini conducting. The enthralled audience called out the composer and cast forty-seven times and placed on Puccini’s head a silver crown bearing the national colors of Italy and the US. When Franco Corelli died recently in Milan at the age of eighty-two, the opera world lost one of its most colorful figures, and the most thrilling Italian tenor of his generation. With his powerful voice and movie-star looks, Corelli became an opera matinee idol from the 1950s until his retirement in 1976. Opera d’Oro’s Grand Tier series presents the best-selling Opera d’Oro titles with libretto and deluxe new packaging at mid-price!

Opera in three acts - Libretto by Luigi Illica, Giuseppe Giacosa


One of the most popular operas of the world repertoire, Tosca was finished in the last year of the 19th century. It was based on the French playwright Victorien Sardou’s drama written for Sarah Bernhardt. The premiere of the opera that took place in 1900 in Rome was not accepted with much enthusiasm, and only the performance at La Scala under Arturo Toscanini became a true triumph. The story of singer Floria Tosca and her beloved painter Mario Cavaradossi who fell victim to bloody despot Baron Scarpia on the background of the revolutionary events in Italy of the early 19th century is still able to move to the innermost of one’s heart as the heat of dramatic fervour is masterfully captured in the music. Numerous audio and video recordings of the opera featuring the world’s best singers and conductors were made in the previous century.
This recording was realized by the USSR Bolshoi Theatre in 1974. The celebrated internationally recognized soloists of the opera company of the 1970s Tamara Milashkina, Vladimir Atlantov, Yuri Mazurok and others perform the opera in the original language under the prominent conductor Mark Ermler.

Sergei Prokofiev - The Story of a Real Man

Sergei Prokofiev - The Story of a Real Man
ID: MELCD1002353
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Kolektion: Opera CollectionSubkolektion: Oper

Firma Melodiya presents a unique recording of Sergei Prokofiev’s last opera The Story of a Real Man.
This work is arguably the least known one in Prokofiev’s musical theatre legacy. Finished in 1948, it was never staged in the composer’s lifetime (its “private” performance led to banning the opera and accusing the composer of formalism). Only many years later it saw spotlights, but none of the production lasted long.
The opera, so uncommon in terms of plotline and musical drama, seemed incredible even for an innovator like Prokofiev. The composer who had brought to the stage the characters of Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky and Bryusov was carried away with Boris Polevoy’s novel about pilot Alexei Meresiev (he lost his legs as a result of a severe injury, but at the cost of unbelievable efforts and exercising he returned to the battle ranks). The main character is shown crawling from a shot down plane, in a hospital ward and mastering his artificial limbs at hospital. The character of Alexei, a winner in his own life drama, a man of enormous fortitude who did something seemingly impossible, was an incentive for the composer’s creative imagination.
The dramatic concept of the opera is built on a frame-like sequence of short scenes set off with moving lyrical episodes. The musical language of the opera predominantly consists of declamation and recitative and is full of songful intonations.
The only recording of The Story of a Real Man that now exists was made by the company of the USSR Bolshoi Theatre in 1961 and conducted by young maestro Mark Ermler. The character of Alexei Meresiev became one of the highest achievements of prominent singer Evgeny Kibkalo. The recording also features other celebrated soloists of the theatre such as Glafira Deomidova, Margarita Miglau, Kira Leonova, Alexei Maslennikov, Mark Reshetin and Artur Eisen.
