 Disappoinating March 20, 2012 By H. Carlson (Sandwich, IL) See All My Reviews "I approached this recording with much enthusiasm in that both Marco Berti and Giacomo Prestia were both singing these roles at our Lyric Opera of Chicago so I wanted to hear them. Both acquit themselves with outstanding fervor. The real find here is the glorious Elvira of Susan Neves; a real Verdi soprano with the heft needed for this role. What makes me sad is that this is a terrific performance but is standard opera house. No repeats; all the cuts in place and that should no longer be tolerated in recordings. We are so used to compleness in current recordings that there is no reason for cuts to be taken.

So buyer beware. "
