We were very pleased with the CDs - they gave us a good grounding in the opera before we went to see it in Truro. Postage, however, was very slow.

3.0 out of 5 stars Late
I was disappointed by the singing of Cheryl Studer as Gilda. Her voice is thin and tremulous to my ears. The rest of the cast are excellent and the orchestral playing and chorus are thrilling.

This review is from: GIUSEPPE VERDI: Rigoletto (Audio CD)
This is a good recording, but far from a first choice. The conducting by Maestro Levine is lacking vitality and sharpness. Pavarotti really knows the Duke, but he has done it better in earlier recordings. Studer is not a Gilda. Chernov is good - but good is not enough in this opera.
