it was amazing

Concise and pithy guide to this perennial Verdi favourite. We have a brief overview of Verdi's life, the background to the opera's creation and its critical reception over the years since its less-than-illustrious premiere, an account of the singers heard on the CD, a full libretto in both Italian and English annotated with points to look out for. Plus, of course, the opera itself, complete across two CDs. This particular edition features a beautiful performance of the opera from Beverly Sills and Nicolai Gedda, with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Aldo Ceccato. A wonderful package.
