If you notice I have written a review for both the full version and the highlights for this recording. I bought the highlights first and then moved up to the full version. Well you might wonder why. With most operas I will always recommend buying the full version and if possible buying the DVD. Only with a full performance can the true pieces come to life. With Madam Butterfly however to date no really high quality DVD performances exist. The full version of this recording is magnificent. However if you cannot spare the time or you a little afraid of spending out on a three disc set then in this case I can high recommend this recording. The chosen highlights are very good and give you a real taste for this opera.
The mixture of Pavarotti and Freni at their best comes through. You might wonder who Freni manages it. She does not have the build of the typical leading soprano yet she brings to the world of opera the most perfect of voices and performances. Herbert von Karajan can be over powering sometimes but in this he has just about right. Christa Ludwig turns in a great role as Suzsuki but I think you need to hear the full version to get her at her best.
What I think is special about this production is the combination of Freni and Pavarotti Recorded in 1974 just as Pavarotti was getting known his voice still has the magical quality. They have a special harmony in their performances. The quality is of the recoding is very good and so do not put off into buying later recordings just because it a 1970's version.
If you like this, buy either the Freni and Pavarotti version of La Boheme or treat yourself to the full version.

I believe there is no point wasting time listening to anything else but opera... :)
This CD is a cross-section of Puccini's Madam Butterfly, the full length of it is just over 66 minutes, so less than half of the full opera.
However it is a great introduction to this wonderful piece of music with Freni and Pavarotti as Madam Butterfly and B.F.Pinkerton.
The recording is clear and intense and the choice of arias excellent!
A must have for anyone wanting to make inroads into opera.

Just what I needed to remind me of my visits to the opera. This is I think my favourite of all operas and I can now play a little whenever I want to. A good recording and much appreciated.

A beautiful opera with great arias. The quality of recording is a bit poor but does not take too much away from the enjoyment
