This 1978 studio recording of Rigoletto stars a cast that brings energy and life into all its wonderful music. I have to admit that Beverly Sills's vioce is getting a little old here, in fact she is way past her prime, she doesn't have that signature endless top range. That said she pulls off a Gilda very close to that of Callas and Anderson. Kraus is in a role that he was born to play, his vioce is on top form here with all the sparkle of incredible tops c's. Then there is Milnes who turns a Rigoletto that is yet to be matched. His vioce brings up all the anger and rage that Gobbi brought to this charater years before. This set is a wonderful deal, great music at a great price.

Format: Audio CD
This recording, which offers only the highlights from Verdi's dark opera Rigoletto, is a fine studio recording with good singers and good orchestration when you really think about it. It's true that the lead singers are past their primes and their vocals, though well-trained and dramatically convincing, do not pack a punch as good as they used to in their salad days of the 60's. Only Sherril Milnes and Samuel Ramey, both baritones, deliver a noteworthy performance. Samuel Ramey is in fine singing condition and he had only been singing professionally very recently. In fact, if you are a fan of Ramey, this would count as one of his oldest recordings and his voice is superb here. This is a recording dating from 1978. By then, Beverly Sills and Alfredo Kraus were much older (Sills was approaching her fifties and Alfredo Kraus had also past his glory days as tenor) but nonetheless this is a well delivered opera recording as a whole. It can get you interested the entire opera and perhaps when you do buy the whole opera you can get superior singers and a much loved recording. It's a sort of "introduction" to opera. The same can apply to the recordings of "Barber Of Seville" and "La Traviata", also under the baton of maestro Julius Rudel and starring Beverly Sills- which were also made in the late 70's.
The strength of Verdi's Rigoletto lies squarely on its powerful drama. The tragic plot revolves around a court jester (Rigoletto- Milnes) who is employed in the service of an extremely decadent and corrupt Duke (Kraus). The Duke's first aria shows him to be a womanizer (Questo e Quella) along the lines of Don Giovanni. When Rigoletto insults a deformed guest at the Duke's party Monterrone, Rigoletto is cursed.

This Rigoletto is absolutely wonderful. Rudel conducted firmly but not magnificently, but the cast is magnificent. Milnes (also the title role in the Rigoletto with Sutherland and Pavarotti) is the best ever, no doubt. Always touching and powerful, his acting is amazing (if only there was a Milnes/Callas version!) and his screams of "Gilda! Gilda!" are unrivalled. Alfredo Kraus isn't an incredible actor but his creamy, youthful tone is perfect with the added bonus of a high D in "Possente amor." (Only Pavarotti, by the way, attempted this on any of the recordings I've heard - Domingo, di Stefano, and del Monaco are among those that cut the aria or went for the lower note.) Sills is an extremely convincing Gilda even if, at times, like Callas and Sutherland, she sounds too mature. If you want an incredible Rigoletto and duke, go for this. Gilda . . . well, Sills is great but I prefer Cotrubas or Gueden.
