Donizetti: LÆelisir dÆamore / Erede/NHK SO, Tagliavini, Noni, La Porta [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

Gaetano Donizetti and his librettist Felice Romani created some of the most human and ingratiating characters in all of opera. This 1959 Tokyo production features the legendary singers Ferruccio Tagliavini and Alda Noni in their only complete live performances captured on film. Sung and acted with a refreshing spontaneity, humor, and lightness of touch, the performance is a rare and precious memento of a bygone era when opera was still part of popular Italian culture. Embedded Japanese subtitles remain on screen throughout. Optional subtitles in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. 107 minutes, Black & White, mono, 4:3, All regions.
