Notes & Reviews:

There can never be enough recordings of this beloved opera, and this rare one from Radio Italy in 1965 highlights not only the fine tenor Gianfranco Cecchele, little remembered today, but also the fascinating soprano "Anna de Cavalieri" - who was actually Anne McKnight, a native of Aurora, Illinois who made her career mostly in Italy under an assumed name! She was a very popular artist there in the 1950s and '60s.
