Description: Three of Bellini's operas - La sonnambula and Norma (both 1831) and his last work, I puritani (1835) — remain classics of the bel canto repertoire, yet the slightly earlier La straniera remains curiously neglected. In fact, this highly romantic melodrama, first staged at La Scala in 1829, was initially a success and only fell from grace when the bel canto style itself became unfashionable. The score points forward to Bellini's greatest works and features superb dramatic writing. The usual lavish presentation (178-page book with libretto and color photos and 70-page color 2008 Opera Rara catalogue) obtains. 2 CDs. Italian-English libretto. Patrizia Ciofi (soprano), Mark Stone (baritone), Dario Schmunck (tenor), Enkelejda Shkosa (mezzo), Geoffrey Mitchell Choir, London Philharmonic Orchestra; David Parry.
