Many thanks to our friend Bob for this rare gem
This recording is truly faithful to Bellini’s written score, as no music is cut or greatly embellished. You wouldn’t really notice, however, as singers, conductor, and orchestra alike make this opera come alive with fire and beauty. Caballe was a justly celebrated Norma, with the vocal size and flexiblity demanded by this most challenging role. You can feel the emotions she must have felt and radiated on the stage listening to her. This is a great performance by a great artist.

To my friend Spearo
Somewhen in the 70s I had a highlights record of this recording. I remember, it blew me away on hearing Milnes, a baritone, singing some high tunes like a tenor…the only baritone I ever heard singing Figaro this way…
