  1. Bob: Possibly some help from
    Amazon: This Bellini box of 10 cds features complete recordings of
    La Sonnambula, I Puritani, Norma and Beatrice di Tenda
    recorded by Joan Sutherland and husband Richard Bonynge
    between 1962 and 1966. The first three were recorded a
    second time by the couple with different casts in the 1970s
    and 1980s. They are not to be confused with these versions.
    Joan Sutherland was at her absolute peak when these recordings
    were made. In Sonnambula and Puritani the sound she produces
    is utterly awesome – the sheer beauty, purity, range and
    virtuosity of the voice are quite simply breathtaking –
    these are truly dazzling performances. The casting though
    not quite at her level is more than adequate.
    In Sonnambula tenor Nicola Monti is light and attractive and
    though he cannot go all the way at the top he sings with con-
    siderable elegance and charm – bass Fernando Corena has a big
    colorful voice and offers a very sympathetic portrayal.
    In Puritani tenor Pierre Duval has a strong voice with an
    impressive upper register and blends excitingly with Sutherland
    in their duets – Renato Capecchi and Ezio Flagello are both
    sonorous and offer sturdy performances.
    The Norma of 1964 is by now a classic – foremost it preserves
    the formidable partnership of Joan Sutherland and Marilyn
    Horne at their very peak producing a stream of beautiful and
    exciting singing. John Alexander and Richard Cross are well
    schooled singers and offer strong support – this is also the
    only absolutely complete version sung in the original keys.
    The somewhat neglected Beatrice di Tenda is no less worthy
    than the other three operas – Sutherland is again on top of
    things with beautiful and poised singing while Cornelius Opthof
    is appropriately malevolant as Fillipo – as the second couple
    we have the fine Josephine Veasey and a young and seductive
    Luciano Pavarotti. Richard Bonynge presides over all this with
    stylish conducting – the sound is excellent. These operas come
    with synopsises but no librettos and Puritani is presented in
    a slightly abridged version. If you are an early Sutherland
    devotee and/or Bellini lover this box is well worth considering.
