Best complete recording that Sutherland and Pavarotti made

This CD finds both the stars at their absolute peak. Pavarotti is astonishing! Sutherland’s voice had gotten it’s biggest at this point (in 1968) but it hadn’t lost any girlishness yet. The tomboyishness of Marie is perfect for her and she even acts the part effectively (of course her singing is spectacular). The supporting players are excellent, especially Malas, who sings exceedingly well and acts even better. This CD documents how amazing it was to go to the opera in the late 60s and captures possibly the two greatest voices of the century at their peak.
