Notes and Editorial Reviews

This presentation from Rome in 1946 is more like a filmed play (with dialogue dubbed into English) that includes perhaps 30 minutes of Verdi's music as sung by Gobbi and Del Monaco.

The lavish costumes and settings for this romantic and melodramatic feature film version perfectly capture the period and style. The unforgettable vocal performances of the legendary Tito Gobbi and Mario Del Monaco highlight this Verdi masterpiece.

“Gobbi’s Rigoletto…is for me the epitome of all that the opera is.” “(Del Monaco)…his ringing tones provide a thrill…vocal plenitude and splendour” -- OPERA
