Audiophile HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Decca) Jaques Offenbach – The Tales Of Hoffmann (Sutherland/Domingo)

This is the first of many recordings that attempts to return this opera–which the composer left unfinished at his death–to something more in line with what he envisioned. While it may work in the theater, it seems fitful on record, particularly with spoken dialogue. The cast, with Plácido Domingo in the title role and Joan Sutherland playing all four heroines, has long made this recording a first-choice Hoffmann among some critics.
