5.0 out of 5 stars A Genuine Verdian Feast! January 19, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This recording of "Un Ballo in Maschera" is excellent. The soloists are all superb! This should come as no surprise as they include Leontyne Price, Carlo Bergonzi and the late Shirley Verret and Robert Merrill, all in their vocal prime. The orchestra plays extremely well under Erich Leinsdorf, who was a seasoned and experienced opera conductor. This recording even boasts some "luxury casting" in a young Reri Grist, in her prime, as Oscar, and Ezio Flagello, as Samuel. There are other good recordings of Ballo out there, but most of them stand on a few excellent singers, while other singers on the same recording can be dreadful. This recording is unique in that it is one of the few of Ballo, or any opera for that matter, in which all the roles, major and minor, are sung magnificently, to the accompaniment of a fine orchestra under a fine conductor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Recording December 16, 2010
By Matthew
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Recording and singers are excellent. Leontyne Price is peerless in almost all Verdi, and Bergonzi is simply outstanding.

However, I regret that RCA did not include a libretto so that the listener can follow along with the drama. Instead, there is only an english synopsis. I'm sure this was a much cheaper alternative, but still---not cool! I would have also preferred a handsomer, box set package as older recordings have.

All in all, 5 for the music and 3.5 for packaging and lack of handy libretto.
