Notes and Editorial Reviews

A breathtaking presentation of one of the world's most beloved operas, a classic recording given a rave three-star review by the Penguin Guide. Tebaldi, Bergonzi and Sordello are at the peak of their abilities, making this a truly memorable rendition of the Puccini classic. Accompanied by famed conductor Tullio Serafin and the Chorus and Orchestra of the Accademia Santa Cecilia in Rome.

"sensitive and beautifully-paced reading finds Tebaldi at her most radiant... Her singing is consistently rich and beautiful, breathtakingly so in passages like the one where she tells Pinkerton she has changed her religion." -- Penguin Guide 3 stars
