 A Rare Jewel . August 14, 2013 By Joseph  Erdeljac (West Chester, PA) See All My Reviews "Although the selling feature of this disc is Dame Joan Sutherland, stupenda absoluta, she is given a run for her money with this great cast. Other great singers such as Monica Sinclair, Elizabeth Harwood, Spiro Malas and Margreta Elkins to name a few are all up to this difficult music and well worth the listen. Too bad these operas were not recorded in their entirety." Report Abuse
