This is a re-issue of the old Sony release of the live recording of Armida with Renee Fleming. The price is pretty reasonable, especially if you can buy it quickly from a private seller offering it for an even lower price on Amazon.

I will not review the opera or the singing other than to say that it's great (one of my favorite recordings). Mostly I just want to give more information about the packaging. This is a large 3 disc set that comes in a case with multiple compartments for the different discs. Unfortunately there is no libretto with translation, just a small booklet that gives track listings and plot summaries for each disc. I won't detract from the score because of this, but it would have been nice to have a libretto with translation. :(

The two previous reviewers focused on the lack of a libretto. This is the price we pay for these economical reissues. The original recording with libretto is still available and is, understandably so, more expensive. One gets what one pays for. However, I listen to opera while I am at work at my desk or as I am driving. The libretto is of little or no use to me under these circumstances; so I am happy to be able to purchase additions to my collection at bargain prices.

This is a truly thrilling performance of a rare Rossini opera. I listened to it twice through upon receiving it. I can understand why it is rarely performed, although this is a live performance. One needs to marshall a tremendous cast to pull this opera off satisfactorily. Renee Fleming is the only female voice in the cast and shines in her role as the sorceress. The various tenors, and in particular Carlo Bosi, all perform with total commitment and are endowed with the skill to execute Rossini's twists and turns with apparent ease. To be quite honest, I don't even care about the story line; many of them are silly anyway. However, if you want to listen to glorious voices performing difficult music with seeming ease and agility, this recording will thrill you as it did me.

A nice modern recording of a live performance with Renee Flemming who seems to have claimed the title role of Armida. This is a re-release of a previously full priced edition, which I assume had a multi-language libretto. This is a problem given that Armida is a fairly lesser known of the Rossini operas - an english libretto translation is not available. Even the Recordi score, though complete with a piano reduction score does not have an English translation. If you require the english, it seems you will have to secure a copy of the original Sony release and pay premium price for it.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Ralph Moore TOP 500 REVIEWER on October 8, 2014
Format: Audio CD
"Armida" is an oddly configured opera insofar as its cast calls for six tenors of no mean ability in the execution of florid divisions, two basses and one solitary star soprano of extraordinary flexibility and stamina. The first modern revival was by Callas in 1952 and only die-hard fans will be able to tolerate the execrable sound of the complete recording under Serafin, although you may hear her in somewhat less secure voice sing the most famous aria "D'Amore al dolce impero" in live recital in 1954 in San Remo.

The role of the ambiguous heroine Armida was originally written for Rossini's eventual wife Isabella Colbran and it is no exaggeration to observe that neither she nor Callas would necessarily have been better than the Armida here, Renée Fleming, in finest youthful form in 1993 at the Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro under the equally youthful and adept Daniele Gatti; both seem wholly at home in Rossini's idiom. She bestrides the role imperiously, tossing off roulades and spanning the tessitura with ease, employing her smoky lower register through to shining top Bs and Cs. Her final scene is a tour de force and her love duets with Geoffrey Kunde in Acts II ("Dove son io!") and III ("Soavi catene") are sublime; Kunde is the best of the tenors here as befits the principal role of Rinaldo but none of his co-tenors is less than competent and several are outstandingly agile and sweet of tone; just finding six able to cope must have been challenge enough. The two basses are also outstanding: one (Ildebrando D'Arcangelo) subsequently became famous and I have no idea why the other (Sergey Zadvorny) did not, given the quality of his sound.
