Notes & Reviews:

Soprano Zinka Milanov (1906-1989) stars in this 1960 production by the New Orleans Opera, captured in vivid stereo sound. Madame Milanov is joined by Giuseppe Gismondo (Enzo), Irene Kramarich (Laura), Mary McMurray (La Cieca), Cesare Bardelli (Barnaba) and William Wildermann (Alvise). The Orchestra and Chorus of the New Orleans Opera are under the direction of Renato Cellini. Bonus third disc features highlights from the 1953 New Orleans Opera production of La Gioconda, again starring Milanov, this time with Roberto Turrini as Enzo, Claramae Turner as Laura, and Jean Madeira as La Cieca.
