If you like Corelli, don't hesitate to get this. If you like Tebaldi, don't hesitate to get this. If you like both of them, then of course don't hesitate to get this. This is a glimpse at two legends on stage together. Past their prime? Yes. But even at that there is enough left over for some really beautiful sounds. Just listen to Corelli in "O bell'occhi di fata" or "Sogno soave" how he caresses the words. The sound is noisy but it quiets down when the singing starts and is quite listenable.

Don't listen to the other reviewer. He is obviously not a fan.

I gave it 4 stars because of the noisy sound.

Just 2 years earlier Franco's solo Tokyo concert is totally spectacular. The marvel is still near his zenith. But here, while he sings well, he's just not as exciting. Tebaldi had long since had steely off key high notes and was short of breath. So I didn't expect much from her. Also, the choice of selections might be part of the problem. I heard both of them in '65 in Chenier and Corelli several times, always incredible. Even then, Tebaldi was a bit short on breath, and her high notes curdled cream.

I rarely watch this one, but have created new opera fanatics with Corelli's 71 solo Tokyo concert. The encores alone drive the audience wild. Japanese acting like Italians.....

This is not subtle singing from Franco Corelli. Wonder what years of pushing the voice will do? Watch this and find out. The voice is heavy. The high notes are achieved by sheer force of will -- sometimes just by sheer force, period! Tebaldi, goddess that she was, is well past her prime. A good example of a product with "big names" that does not, by any stretch, deliver an acceptable performance.
