Album Summary

Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"...The music is tuneful, conservatively harmonized, immediately attractive, and highly colorful. If this set came with a libretto (almost a requirement for a comic opera) I might well include it on my end-of-the-year Want List. Even without that essential ingredient (and Opera d'Oro does provide a fairly detailed synopsis and a fine essay by Bill Parker), this is so enjoyable that I can recommend it with enthusiasm to any opera-lover... It is hard to imagine a better performance than this one... Opera d'Oro's sound is clean and well balanced - a good standard for a mid-1970s broadcast." -Henry Fogel
