Format: Audio CD
Although this performance has appeared in a number of previous editions, the Opera D'Oro version has sound to match the best - and the price is right! Cappucilli is in his youthful prime and Anna Maria Rota, though without an intrinsically 'beautiful' sound, is stylistically correct and dramatically committed. The fly in the ointment is Bondino, whose evident commitment cannot overcome his bleating tone and vague sense of pitch. But of course it is for Gencer that enthusiasts will want this recording. The year of the performance, 1964, was Gencer's 'annus mirabilis' with not only this supreme interpretation (in the first revival in modern times) of Elisabetta, but magisterial interpretations of Beatrice di Tenda and Norma, among others. Very different from the equally valid interpretations of Sills and Caballe, Gencer's unique sense of line and of the use of words to color the music make her unique

Format: Audio CD
Donizetti's operatic production is amazingly abundant, but only a few titles were regularly performed in the XXth century until the 'Bel canto revival' of the fifties and sixties. This is partly explained by melodies and themes lacking of interest or originality, and partly by the extraordinary vocal abilities demanded (especially to sopranos). A small group of outstanding sopranos have been responsible for Donizetti's revival: Callas, Gencer, Sutherland and Caballé, and, more recently, Gruberova. Roberto Devereux was exhumated in 1964 by Leyla Gencer after being forgotten for almost a hundred years. This recording was taken during one of those historical performances. Here we have a splendid Elisabetta sung by Gencer. An excellent Nottingham is sung by a young Piero Cappuccilli, and Ana Maria Rota is very good as Sara. Ruggero Bondino sings a forgettable Roberto Devereux, but fortunately the title role of this opera is of secondary importance. The Naples orchestra sounds well, conducted by Mario Rossi. The quality of sound is good. Despite some generalized opinion, this opera has good merits and deserves more attention. The music has moments of quality and grandeur. This recording provides an excellent opportunity: an outstanding historical performance by an exceptional soprano (Gencer) and an excellent baritone (Cappucilli) at a very low price. As usual, it would be highly desirable that Opera d'oro series included libretto and comments, especially in the case of rare operas like this one.

what has already been written about this historic recording is accurate and at this price is worth purchasing but sadly the supporting cast are not up to Gencer's standard and it shows - especially Bondino. This often happens with Gencer recordings, sound is ok, no libretto at all which is a shame as it is a rare opera whose enjoyment is greatly increased by knowing what is actually happening!

Source:
1964 live performance recorded at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples.

Sound:
Fair overall and sometimes a bit better than that. This is a fairly representative example of a live opera recording made in the sixties at the sub-professional level. For an Italian audience, the Neapolitan crowd at the San Carlo on that night were fairly restrained and disciplined, although enthusiasts were on hand, naturally, to hurl out plenty of bravas and bravos, whether needed or not. A couple of false starts in the applause demonstrate that the audience was not familiar with the opera.

Cast:
Elisabetta, Queen of England - Leyla Gencer
Roberto Devereaux, Earl of Essex - Ruggero Bondino
Duke of Nottingham - Piero Capucilli
Sara, betrothed to Nottingham but in love with Essex - Anna Maria Rota
Lord Cecil, Privy Councilor to the Queen - Gabriele De Julis
Sir Gualtier Raleigh, Captain of the Queen's Guard - Silvano Pagliuca
A page - Bruno Grella.

Conductor:
Mario Rossi with the Orchestra e Coro del Teatro San Carlo di Napoli.

Documentation:
Typical Od'O package. No libretto. Bill Parker struggles manfully to pack in a history of the opera and to summarize its plot in the hopelessly narrow space allotted to him. The track list provides only the first few Italian words on each track. Singers are not identified, nor are timings provided. Nothing on the cast or the circumstances of the recording.

Format:
Disk 1 - Sinfonia, track 1; Act I, tracks 2-14; 61:03.
Disk 2 - Act II, tracks 1-7; Act III, tracks 8-16; 67:38.

Some years ago the great Beverly Sills recorded this classic role. That recording was legendary. Now we have a live recording of the great Leyla Gencer singing the role. This performance is superb; dramatic, gripping, and also legendary.
