Catalogue Number: 07L047
Label: Oehms Classics
Reference: OC 920
Description: This 1820 opera is the sort of thing Opera Rara might have given its lavish attentiont to. But they can't do everything and if the libretto is in Italian only and the notes of only average quality and length, the bel canto quality of the writing and the vivid title part (and the fact that it's much less expensive) make it a must have for collectors. 2 CDs. Italian libretto. Capucine Chiaudani, Rebecca Nelsen (sopranos), Tomasz Zagorski (tenor), Dae-Bum Lee (bass), Chorus and Orchestra of the Braunschweig State Opera; Gerd Schaller.
