Beatrice di Tenda is a beautiful and unjustly neglected opera.
It contains gorgeous melodies, great arias and exciting finales.
Joan Sutherland made the role very much her own in the early
1960's. This first studio recording made in 1966 still stands
well. Sutherland captures the character's sadness and dignity
well with beautiful and poised singing and naturally shines in
cabalettas. The unkown Cornelius Opthof holds himself very well
next to Sutherland with a secure top and incisive phrasing as
the wicked Fillipo. As the second couple we have a fiery Jose-
phine Veasey as Agnese and a very young Luciano Pavarotti as
Orombello. Excellent sound and briskly conducted by Richard Bo-
nynge. Highly recommended to Sutherland/Bellini lovers.

When measured against his operas such as Norma, I Puritani, or La Somnambula, or even his operas such as I Capuleti e i Montecchi and Il Pirata, it is easy to see why this is a lesser-known work. Beatrice is a hand-wringing victim, not a blazing heroine like Norma or even unhinged by love like Elvira (I Puritani). True, she's married to a human fiend, (excellently sung by the unknown Cornelius Opthof), and her true love (sung somewhat less ardently than usual by Luciano Pavarotti) turns out to be a [...], but still, most of her music is merely sad and full of self-pity or self-sacrifice at the end.
This kind of music is hard to put any real fire to, and Sutherland doesn't. She makes a gorgeous sound, and she does droopy and pathetic real well, but the whole production sounds a little detached, as if everybody (including the orchestra) wishes they were doing something else. The two exceptions are the aforementioned Opthof, and mezzo Josephine Veasey, who puts some life into the role of the wicked husband's evil mistress.
Maybe it's the material--even the great composers can't be expected to hit a home run every time. This 1966 Decca recording has acceptable sound and there is a libretto, although it doesn't have any essay about the opera itself. It's not bad, it's just generic bel canto.

I have to disagree with every other reviewer here- I find this studio recording to be one of Sutherland's weakest. True, this opera is not as glorious as Norma, I Puritani, or La Sonnambula. However, when compared with Sutherland's other Bellini studio recordings, one must accept that this particular outing has more minuses than plusses. A large part of the problem is the fact that, in 1966, she was in her droopy/spoony period, something that would not improve until later on. True, she does produce some lovely high notes, and the axiom of "Sutherland's less-than-best beats everyone else's" still applies. Unfortunately, one only has to listen to the bonus tracks at the end of the third CD, taken from her first recordings of Puritani, Sonnambula, and Norma, to understand that Sutherland was capable of much better. It's not just a question of her dramatic capability- it's a matter of not wanting to hear at her mushy, droopy worst.
This being SUTHERLAND and not any other run-of-the-mill soprano, it probably is still worth it to own this studio recording. However, if you want to hear Sutherland in top form as a Bellini heroine, try her first recording of Norma (with Marilyn Horne), either recording of I Puritani, or her first recording of La Sonnambula.

I love both Sutherland and Bellini, and the combination is usuallly magical. Not quite so here.

Sutherland, just in her prime, sounds droopy in this recording. It just seems that earlier AND later recordings were better than this (Norma 1962, Lucia 1972). The 'Angiol di Pace is such a disappointment...I keep thinking of a live recoding with Sutherland, Pavarotti, and Horne from 1981. That "Angiol" was perfection, and that from a 55 year old, not the 40 year old who is singing here. Still, Sutherland is always a delight. Just not as much as usual.

Pavarotti...who would complain?

Veasey: my main complaint. dear Marilyn Horne, where were you that day? Veasy is callow, harsh...totally off-putting. I skip past her lengthy solo.

The music itself is vintage Bellini. There is even a section of music identical to one in La Sonnambula. I do so hate it when composers do that, as in Donizetti when he transplanted a chorus from Maria de Rudenz to La Fille du Regiment...

A nice addition to a collection...just not the best Bellini.
