5.0 out of 5 stars Esclarmonde
This is undoubtedly the finest of Massenet's operas and is essential for all lovers of good opera, Joan Sutherland, Jaume Aragall and Richard Bonynge. Dame Joan always said that this was the opera of which she was the most proud and particularly with her preferred tenor Jaume (Giacomo) Aragall. Her husband Richard Bonynge conducts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Esclarmonde, 29 Feb 2012
This review is from: Massenet: Esclarmonde (Audio CD)
This is undoubtedly the finest of Massenet's operas and is essential for all lovers of good opera, Joan Sutherland, Jaume Aragall and Richard Bonynge. Dame Joan always said that this was the opera of which she was the most proud and particularly with her preferred tenor Jaume (Giacomo) Aragall. Her husband Richard Bonynge conducts. An absolute gift at this price and it is essential in any collection of opera. An exquisite performance from Joan as Esclarmonde and Aragall as Roland. All recordings of Jaume Aragall should be bought as he was the finest lyric tenor of the 20th century.

Without the libretto boklet this product is only half what it might be.
