Format: DVD
For those of you, gentle reader, who are HD dependant, this re-release of a 1961 live concert may be something that you pass on. The picture quality, while very good, is less than perfect, and the sound, originally mono, shows its age.

But if you want to see why Carlo Bergonzi was considered by many, your humble reviewer included, as the finest tenor interpreter of Verdi in the second half of the 20th century, "run, do not walk" to snatch up this little jewel.

Bergonzi sang in my first opera, Macbeth, on an AM Met broadcast. I was able to attend one of his last appearances in the US on his farewell tour, met him and was able to thank him for the hours of enjoyment he provided us. In addition to arias from Oberto, Aroldo, Ballo, Luisa Miller and Trovatore, Bergonzi sings "E lucevan lestelle" from Tosca. In 1961, when this concert was given in Lugano, Bergonzi who was at the height of his powers, sings with amazing technique, control and vocal splendor. The sheer musicality of his voice has always moved me; there is an indescribable sweetness to the voice and an impeccible "rightness" to his interpretations.

This is a "must have" for any lover of Italian Opera.
