An interesting release -- maybeMay 28, 2015By William Talbott (Houston, TX)See All My Reviews"For many years, I have had a 2CD release on Le Chant du Monde of this opera. That release is in mono. That release has the same performers and conductor. However, that release claims a recording date of 1955. So what is this release? Is it in stereo? The performance is on the ChantduMonde very good except for the Swan Princess role (Oleynitchenko) who screeches rather than sings. What I would give for a new recording with Netrebko as the Princess! (Netrebko does sing the Swan Princess's aria from Act4, scene 2 on her Russian Album)."Report Abuse
