Notes & Reviews:

Seven complete operas starring the magnificent Montserrat Caballe—great live opera recordings at budget price in one space-saving set! Exciting live recordings taped 1965–1975! Along with Maria Callas ("La Divina") and Joan Sutherland ("La Stupenda"), Montserrat Caballe (b. 1933) took her place as one of the Big Three sopranos of the second half of the 20th century. When she made her New York debut in 1965, she was instantly heralded as "La Superba," a sure sign she had reached the pinnacle of diva fame. Caballe was especially noted for her pure legato, effortless phrasing, and ability to fl oat soft high notes of breathtaking beauty. Her generosity and down-to-earth humor have endeared her to her fans.
