Product Description

Amazon.com

This collection is chock full of some of opera's juiciest moments, sung by some of opera's greatest voices. Many are familiar whether you know their names: The elegant Barcarolle from Les Contes d'Hoffmann, the lazy, hazy soprano-mezzo "flower" duet from Lakme, the boastful "La donna è mobile" from Rigoletto, and the "Toreador Song" from Carmen sound like tunes from our subconscious by now; one could say the same about "Musetta's Waltz" and the other Bohème excerpts, as well as Figaro's rousing aria from The Barber of Seville. But the gorgeous quartet from Rigoletto's last act, as sung here by Pavarotti, Sutherland, Milnes, and Tourangeau will enchant, as well, the sextet from Lucia di Lammermoor is dazzling, and if you don't know the "Sogno di Doretta" from Puccini's La Rondine, you're in for a beautiful treat. An aria from Tosca with Pavarotti will bring tears to your eyes. A truly fine anthology. --Robert Levine

5.0 out of 5 stars Selection for the Ages February 21, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is indeed a marvelous selection of beautiful Opera, both for the beginner and for the well-listened veteran. Pavarotti makes wonderful choices from the world of Opera, and brings it home to the listener. The arias are breathtaking, and are recognizable to nearly all people. This CD is perfect for the listener of any age, and the buyer of this certainly won't be disappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice intro to opera November 8, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Being somewhat of a novice to opera, I found this c.d. to have a nice variety and be easy to listen to. I'm not saying it's the absolute best rendition of every song (which is pretty subjective anyway) but I actually like every piece on it -- rare for a compilation. Overall, I'd say it's great for someone who just likes listening to beautiful music and singing, as well a good jumping off point for those looking for an opera to delve more deeply into. Pretty good for kids and the opera shy as well -- nothing too harsh, screechy or challenging. My 2.5 yr old loves it.

I play this in my car all the time. This album contains the best music of famous opera, and have been used in commercials. The best collections in one album. I just love it!

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A collection of greatest hits which is a good introduction to anyone new to opera but enjoyable for experienced opera lovers too. And it has the bonus of several track with the incomparable Pavarotti.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for everyone May 10, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Only a tone deaf bigoted minded listener could be failed to be moved by this great cast. Some selections should even bring tears to the eyes of a heavy metal rocker!
