Notes & Reviews:

Eva Urbanova, opera singer, soloist of the National Theatre Opera in Prague, and guest artist at prestigious foreign opera houses (including New York's Metropolitan Opera) celebrates 20 years as a concert and opera soloist in May. This selection offers the best of her recordings, reminding us of her famous roles of the Czech and international repertoire. It includes her suggestive Kostelnicka in Janacek's Jenufa, stirring LibuSe in Smetana's gala opera, Puccini's Tosca and Turandot and other gems. Supraphon dedicates this musical gift to Urbanova and her faithful listeners.
