Format: Audio CD
With this new release, Opera Rara continues its yeoman service of revamping the image of discarded Italian composers of the 19th century. Having given loving attention to Mercadante and Pacini, they now turn to Federico Ricci, recording this album of highlights from his 1838 hit, La Prigione d'Edimburgo.

Jeremy Commons relates in his essay in the accompanying booklet that the two sopranos who originally created the co-heroines Giovanna and Ida had voices remarkably similar in timbre and range. Opera Rara cast Elisabetta Scano and Nuccia Focile in the roles, and so have opted for historical accuracy. Scano, though she has a wonderful voice, is the weak link in terms of casting. Her voice is perfectly suited to a comic opera - it is agile, clear, and very pretty, with some ravishing high notes. Indeed, Scano was delightful in Opera Rara's recording of Donizetti's one-act farsa La Romanzesca, and both she and Focile score a hit in the Il Salotto series. However, La Prigione di Edimburgo is a primarily serious, melodramatic work; the two sopranos are rivals in love and over a baby, a situation that ought to be emotionally intense. Scano, as Dorothy Parker once quipped, runs the gamut of emotions from A to B, using virtually no expression and sounding exactly the same whether the libretto says she is having a passionate outburst or it's an ordinary utterance. Focile has all of Scano's strengths, but is better suited to her role as the mad gypsy girl, Giovanna. She is not afraid to express differing moods, and to use her chest voice. She single-handedly maintains the sense of drama in their big 3-part duet.
