Notes & Reviews:

One of the prolific Gaetano Donizetti’s lesser-produced masterworks, Poliuto, originally banned from production in Italy in the late 1830s only to return a decade in a French translation, is a story of religious persecution, punishment and marital faithfulness. This live, Antonino Votti conducted 1960 La Scala, Milan performance’s eye-watering, jealousy-inducing cast features Maria Callas, Ettore Bastianini in the vocal prime of his foreshortened career, Franco Corelli and Nicola Zaccaria. Returning to the active catalog, this release is a direct transfer from the master tapes.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
As usual Myto publishes neither notes nor libretto. Myto does tack on a musical bonus. Here it is Callas in the Lucia Mad Scene from the September 29, 1955 performance in Berlin. Callas is in top form, and with Karajan on the podium it's one exciting performance.
