Reup because of Magda’s death.
The Italian soprano Magda Olivero, one of the most prominent interpreters of the Italian verismo operatic tradition whose career spanned 50 years, has died at 104.
The news agency ANSA said Olivero died Monday, Sept. 8th 2014 in a Milan hospital, where she was admitted after a stroke last month.
The Milan opera house La Scala, where Olivero debuted in 1938, honored her memory with a moment of silence before a performance on Monday. La Scala described Olivero’s voice as charismatic, her acting as formidable and her intelligence as “ready and cutting until the end”.
Olivero took a break from performing after her 1941 marriage, returning to the stage in 1958 in the title role of Adriana Lecouvreur at the urging of the opera’s composer Francesco Cilea. It became one of her most memorable roles.

  1. I used to have this album, bought just after I left school. I was so entranced by it. Wow that orchestration!! Years later I upgraded to the cd and gave my lp away. What regrets, as fine as the cd is (with Fedora). How wonderful to possess the lp sound again thanks to you, and what a fabulous transfer. Thank you thank you.
    RIP Magda. You will not be forgotten. Loris
