 A Classic Account May 15, 2012 By Rory R. (Winnipeg, MB) See All My Reviews "Discovering Weber's score is one of the most delightful events for any opera lover, and this performance, first available in 1972, remains unmatched in its cast and superb, balanced, insightful conducting by Kubelik. The great Birgit Nilsson, in the late prime of her career, is matched by the young Placido Domingo, and a lovely supporting cast." Report Abuse
