Format: Audio CD
What a dream cast! As Almaviva, Nicolai Gedda sounds attractively virile (many Almavivas tend to be vocally "wimpy"), and throws himself into the comedy scenes with gusto! His drunken soldier and ever-so-pious "singing teacher" acts are laugh-out-loud sections, even for a non-Italian speaker like myself. Milnes is in superb voice, and I defy anyone to deliver "Largo al factotum" as breathtakingly / humorously / brilliantly as he does. Like the rest of the cast, Milnes is a superb vocal actor. Capecchi is the funniest Bartolo around, and Ruggero Raimondi's powerful but cleverly nuanced bass-baritone makes for a suitably sinister (and sneaky!) Basilio. Beverley Sills was a real "stage animal", and her Rosina does not disappoint. Purists might object to a soprano singing a mezzo role, but Sills has a mellow lower register and a bell-like "top", not to mention a wonderful sense of mischief! James Levine's exciting conducting - the orchestra has as much fun as the singers! - is the icing on the cake. At a bargain price, too. If you enjoy the fun and magic of Rossini, buy this recording!

This Opera has to be the most enjoyable to listen to. Since getting this cd with some trepidation in case it wasn't as nice as I had heard, I have thought it so wonderful that I've now ordered a DVD aswell. I now think this is simply the best music I have ever heard, one can imagine that it would be regularly played in Heaven.

This is a fabulous vintage cast well worth catching at a bargain price. Sills sparkles as a soprano Rosina.on a lively recording with a young James Levine at the helm.

Almost, but not quite 8 July 2013

It is wonderful to have this Sills set again, however a minus for the serious listener is the absence of a libretto (which I had in my original vinyl edition).

purchased for my father 5 Feb 2012
By Taryn&Daxter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This review is brought to you by Me. XD just kidding ofcourse, but let's get to the bottom of things here.

This was purchased as a birthday gift for my father, along with another Disc, and he absolutely LOVES IT! He never put it down, and the quality of the sound, along with the disc itself, is pure and sounds like you're in the concert hall listening to them play in the front row seats! Very excellent and I hope to hear more great things from Rossini myself in the future.
