Album Summary

>Donizetti, Gaetano : Gemma di Vergy, opera
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Little known today, mainly because almost no sopranos other than Mme. Caballe can sing it, "Gemma di Vergy" was for some years in the 19th century the most popular opera by Donizetti, produced more often than "Lucia", "Don Pasquale" and "L'elisir d'amore". This great recording is of the first revival of the opera in almost 75 years; a release of great interest for all Donizetti and/or Caballe fans. Live performance, Naples, December 12, 1975.
