Ginevra, Grand-Théâtre - 8 maggio 1946, registrazione dal vivo. Questa registrazione è l'unica registrazione completa di Un Ballo in maschera con del Monaco nonché la sua prima registrazione completa .
A collection focusing on historical singers in rare recordings - mostly in the form of “portrayals”. The singers featured here are the ones who have made opera legendary. Hence the name “Il Mito dell’Opera” - “Legendary Opera”
This series features rarely performed operas, symphonic music and chamber works. Many of these recordings were world première recordings. Hence the title “Novità del Passato” – they are all “News from the Past”.
This series offers complete recordings - always live, and always from the golden age. It is, obviously, the continuation of our series “The Golden Age of Opera” which has been very popular among aficionados.
