Caveat emptor, 25 Nov 2011
The box, the booklet and the discs all proclaim this to be 'Les Huguenots'. Only inside the booklet are you told that what you are getting is 'Gli Ugonotti', the three act Italian version. The recording is a live performance from 1962 but could date from thirty years earlier to judge by the sound quality. I found it painful to listen to and all the undoubted splendours of the singing go for nought. Are all those ecstatic US reviewers listening to the same recording/transfer?
