Notes & Reviews:

Following the MET's highly acclaimed "La Traviata" on DG with Cheryl Studer and Luciano Pavarotti (DGG 435 797) comes this long awaited release of "Rigoletto" featuring the same artists. James Levine conducts in Verdi's popular tragedy of the hunchbacked court jester, his beautiful daughter, and the seductive count.

Penguin Guide
Levine conducts a thrustful, exceptionally high-powered reading of Rigoletto, vividly dramatic. The sound is full and immediate...Chernov is a firm, clear, virile Rigoletto...Studer is a tenderly affecting Gilda.
