Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This historic 1975 recording with the great Montserrat Caballe presents the first revival of this once-popular Donizetti opera, which had been unperformed for over seventy years! In the mid-19th century it was one of Donizetti's most-produced operas, surpassing even 'Lucia di Lammermoor' in number of performances. Gemma is one of the most taxing sopranos ever written. This live performance is from Naples, December 12th, 1975.
