 Magnificent! January 12, 2014 By Henry S. (Springfield, VA) See All My Reviews "Donizetti's rollicking comic opera The Elixir of Love receives a scintillating performance in this early 1970's London/Decca recording. Featuring an unbeatable cast, headed by Joan Sutherland and Luciano Pavarotti, this wonderful interpretation demonstrates singing of the highest levels of artistic integrity- definitive, passionate, lyrical, committed. The English Chamber Orchestra responds to Richard Bonynge's direction to provide sharp, colorful orchestral support, and the Ambrosian Opera Chorus' performance can only be described as brilliant. As you can tell, I loved this recording, and I'm sure you will as well. Donizetti wrote immediately attractive operatic works, The Elixir of Love being a perfect example. Strong recommendation!"
