Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Once the listener accepts that this is a live recording, there is much to enjoy. Cappucilli is a robust Nabucco, but never shouts; Linda Roark Strummer negotiates the extremes of Abigaille's fearsome vocal lines ably, with indifferent Italian. Minor roles are strong - a cavernous Zaccaria from Roberto Scandiuzzi is very imposing. The chorus are loud and slightly unwieldy, and their entrances make a dreadful din sometimes. Recorded sound is far from subtle, with an unwelcome steeliness at the top. But it is palpably live - from the near-hysterical audience reaction to the big numbers to the real excitement of interactions between characters. Quite weirdly, an encore is given of 'Va, pensiero' - it's a great chorus, but dramatically it makes a nonsense of Act III.
It's a good low-budget way of getting to know the piece, but definitely not for the audiophile

Attention:
I ordered this CD because I was curious about Linda Roark-Strummer.
Today I've got the CD and was very deceived because the previous reviewer indiquates a complete wrong cast based on which I ordered the recording!!!

The cast as noted on the back of the box is:

Nabucco: Paolo Silveri
Ismaele: Mario Binci
Zaccaria: Antonio Cassinelli
Abigaille: Caterina Mancini
Fenena: Gabriella Gatti
Il Gran Sacerdote Di Belo: Albino Gaggi
Abdallo: Licinio Francardi
Anna: Beatrice Preziosa

Orchestra Sinfonica e Coro di Roma della RAI
Cond: Fernando Previtali
