This is a live recording of a wonderful cast of singers and conductor BUT it has been appallingly recorded and there are many moments of distorted blown out sound. This makes it an interesting archival document but it is not up to scratch for real listening pleasure.

A truly great 'Otello' from Domingo and company, La Scala, 1976 11 Nov. 2010
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
(Note: This is a repeat of my review of the original, cheaper Opera d'Oro release, which has no libretto.)

This same live performance from Dec. 7, 1976, has been around on varoius labels (Myto, Melodram) but here is at bargain price from Opera d'Oro. All the companies use the same radio broadcast, in good stereo, from La Scala, with differences in remastering. In this case the sound stage is a bit cramped because someobdy has rolled off the treble, but in other versions the treble is irritatingly bright, so this is a good compromise.

Carlos Kleiber conducted only a handful of operas, and Otello was one of his most acclaimed. It was heard only a few times at the Met becasue the conductor walked out on the production soon after the premiere. He made no commercial recordings, so this one, plus some other pirated recordings on other occasions, is all we will ever have (unless DG is hiding something in its vaults). I have heard three Kleiber Otellos and consider this the best, thanks to Domingo's youthful, impassioned singing--probably his best ever in this role--and Freni's incomparable Desdemona, which can also be heard on another Otello from Opera d'Oro with Jon Vickers under Karajan. It too is excellent in every way.

Kleiber took a swift, tense, tightly controlled approach to the score. He did wonders with the La Scala orchestra and chorus, who sound disciplined yet highly committed. This is a very Italian night at the opera and includes a loud argument in the audience at one point! The sound gets congested during climaxes, but on the whole this is one of the better pirated recordings on the market, not up to studio quality but highly listenable anyway. As a performance it stands among the very best on disc.

LIVE SCALA VERDI OF A LIFETIME, DECEMBER 1976 15 Feb. 2015
By Cody Robert at Spokane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sometimes, maybe once in an operagoer's lifetime, it all miraculously comes together, that synergy of a (very) live performance with a perfect cast, a dynamic and enthusiastic conductor and that pre-curtain prickly feeling in the air that the musical electricity that evening just may be DC, mainlined to the rafters rather than house-standard AC. It was the Scala's opening night, 7 December 1976, and history really was made in this terrifying, electrifying bring-down-the-house performance. The main excitement centered around Domingo's recent and inevitable assumption of the title role, and this recording captures that assumption at its freshest, and with fewer acquired mannerisms than in his studio recordings. The Moor is a virile war hero but a terribly conflicted and hotheaded one (like The Bard, we do stereotype our Moors), and Domingo sings and acts the signature role in its three dimensions of conflict, sex appeal and hotheadedness, in that order. His interactions with Cappucilli's Iago and Freni's Desdemona are pure dynamite, the theatricality genuinely alive and not recreated at a remove as in the studio. I like Cappucilli's singing of Iago very much, for he conveys the misunderstood guy's sinister spookiness and strange agenda thrillingly. (I always wonder, who is more insanely jealous, Otello or Iago, and what is it Iago really wants--power, Desdemona or perhaps even the Moor himself?) La Freni really comes alive, again an improvement over studio recordings, onstage opposite Domingo, and her "Willow song" is not allowed to drag self-indulgently and is exceptionally beautiful. I like Mirella much more after hearing her onstage and suspect the recording studio is not her most flattering habitat.

Apart from the Domingo excitement, Carlos Kleiber in ultrarare live performance was the epochal attraction here, and he surely does not disappoint in customarily revelatory conducting. There is the usual clinical attention to detail and rethinking of a warhorse's essence, but for Scala purposes there is dynamic propulsion, direct-current theatrical excitement and an inevitable, almost Wagnerian, buildup to the great lost-love motif when Otello finally recognizes the enormity of his acts. The tension is palpable and almost unbearable in the closing pages, which are exceptionally moving. Maestro Kleiber really motivated the ensemble cast, a superb multidimensional triangle, but he didn't micromanage the choral supervision, the chorus being in Scala house style Milan-energetic but very disruptive and rambunctious in their exits. Desdemona calms down the choral rabble with her demure entrances and serene music, and the onstage supers evidently don't trample or misplace the fateful handkerchief.

The sound is surprisingly good for a live recording, with the voices captured cleanly and the orchestra sounding very powerful under the driven Maestro Kleiber. This OTELLO moves me to tears more than any other owing to its sense of occasion (remember that date, 12/7/76) and genuine Verdi/Scala theatricality, but I should also cite Decca's legendarily sturdy studio set with the frighteningly rough Mario del Monaco and the exquisitely vulnerable Tebaldi (conducted by the very studio-inspired Karajan), and Naxos have bravely issued an interesting and competitive Spanish performance with an Italo-American cast and an extraordinary choral contribution by the Basque Orfeon Donostiarra. OTELLO invariably succeeds on disc, but the Kleiber set really is indispensable, reaching out and grabbing the listener in the same way that the confused Moor reaches out and paws, then throttles, the chaste spouse. All that Shakespearean ado over a silly little handkerchief! The venerable Verdi certainly appreciated the irony of it all and the complexities of a love triangle with more than three sides.

What a superb opera Verdi's "Otello" is - Glorious music requiring great singers and in this live recording from 1976 conducted by Carlos Kleiber you get all this and more from the La Scala performance in Milan on December 7th, 1976. Domingo as Otello is in superb voice and Mirelli Freni is all one could ask for as Desdemona. The Iago Piero Cappuccilli brings the house down when singing 'era la notte' and the live recording being live has excellent sound. These recordings don't stay in the catalogue for long so get one while you can.

recorded from a seat in audience 11 April 2011
By Doctor Whom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A glorious performance. The recording was made from a noisy audience seat, it seems; the artifacts can distract. Voices are far away, then in your face. Anyone who knows the 1947 Toscanini Otello (restored at pristine audio) will understand that nothing can touch its lightning; the opera unfolds as a single breath. So, that is the recording to start with -- but probably after seeing the opera on DVD (perhaps Karajan's).
