God bless Gobbi - not to mention Suliotis,
This review is from: Verdi: Nabucco (DECCA The Originals) (Audio CD)
This was my first introduction to Verdi's first masterpiece. As an opera it has fantastic pace. Add Gobbi to the mix with his supreme interpretation (see "Chi mi toglie il regio scettro") and it is complete. Gobbi understood theatre; he infuses drama in every phrase. Then you have Elena Suliotis - one of my favourite dramatic sopranos - she is outstanding here (if you can get her Macbeth - it'll be worth the search).
Wonderful opera. Wonderful recording. Get it in your basket!
