Among Rossini’s numerous comic operas, La Cenerentola (1817) has long held a place second only to The Barber of Seville. In fact, for many years it was often more popular than The Barber, until its extreme vocal difficulties became too much for a generation of singers not trained in the Rossini style, and its fantastic atmosphere fell afoul of a preference for verismo, the school of realism. In recent years, the revival of the bel canto style and intense interest in resurrecting authentic Rossini manuscripts has brought about a happy new lease on life for La Cenerentola, which once again is rivaling The Barber in popularity. The libretto by Jacopo Ferretti, though based on the Cinderella fairy tale as told by Charles Perrault, is far different in tone. Rossini and Ferretti agreed to suppress the supernatural themes and create a comedy of manners steeped in irony. This live performance, recorded in Naples in 1958, is one of the finest of its era, with a virtual all-star cast thoroughly schooled in the Rossini style.

Sergei Prokofiev - The Story of a Real Man

Opera Collection
Subcollection: Opéra

Firma Melodiya presents a unique recording of Sergei Prokofiev’s last opera The Story of a Real Man.
This work is arguably the least known one in Prokofiev’s musical theatre legacy. Finished in 1948, it was never staged in the composer’s lifetime (its “private” performance led to banning the opera and accusing the composer of formalism). Only many years later it saw spotlights, but none of the production lasted long.
The opera, so uncommon in terms of plotline and musical drama, seemed incredible even for an innovator like Prokofiev. The composer who had brought to the stage the characters of Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky and Bryusov was carried away with Boris Polevoy’s novel about pilot Alexei Meresiev (he lost his legs as a result of a severe injury, but at the cost of unbelievable efforts and exercising he returned to the battle ranks). The main character is shown crawling from a shot down plane, in a hospital ward and mastering his artificial limbs at hospital. The character of Alexei, a winner in his own life drama, a man of enormous fortitude who did something seemingly impossible, was an incentive for the composer’s creative imagination.
The dramatic concept of the opera is built on a frame-like sequence of short scenes set off with moving lyrical episodes. The musical language of the opera predominantly consists of declamation and recitative and is full of songful intonations.
The only recording of The Story of a Real Man that now exists was made by the company of the USSR Bolshoi Theatre in 1961 and conducted by young maestro Mark Ermler. The character of Alexei Meresiev became one of the highest achievements of prominent singer Evgeny Kibkalo. The recording also features other celebrated soloists of the theatre such as Glafira Deomidova, Margarita Miglau, Kira Leonova, Alexei Maslennikov, Mark Reshetin and Artur Eisen.

Opera in three acts - Libretto by Luigi Illica, Giuseppe Giacosa


One of the most popular operas of the world repertoire, Tosca was finished in the last year of the 19th century. It was based on the French playwright Victorien Sardou’s drama written for Sarah Bernhardt. The premiere of the opera that took place in 1900 in Rome was not accepted with much enthusiasm, and only the performance at La Scala under Arturo Toscanini became a true triumph. The story of singer Floria Tosca and her beloved painter Mario Cavaradossi who fell victim to bloody despot Baron Scarpia on the background of the revolutionary events in Italy of the early 19th century is still able to move to the innermost of one’s heart as the heat of dramatic fervour is masterfully captured in the music. Numerous audio and video recordings of the opera featuring the world’s best singers and conductors were made in the previous century.
This recording was realized by the USSR Bolshoi Theatre in 1974. The celebrated internationally recognized soloists of the opera company of the 1970s Tamara Milashkina, Vladimir Atlantov, Yuri Mazurok and others perform the opera in the original language under the prominent conductor Mark Ermler.


Characters and performers:
Floria Tosca, a celebrated singer -Tamara Milashkina, soprano
Mario Cavaradossi, a painter -Vladimir Atlantov, tenor

Bartók: Duke Bluebeard's Castle, Sz. 48, Op. 11

An unforgettable live-concert recording, selected from the Philharmonia Orchestra and Esa-Pekka Salonen’s season of works by Béla Bartók - „Infernal Dance“.

Sir John Tomlinson Bluebeard
Michelle DeYoung Judith
Juliet Stevenson Narrator
Philharmonia Orchestra
Esa-Pekka Salonen conductor

Reviews of the concert from which this recording was taken:
„John Tomlinson and Michelle DeYoung were vocally so commanding as to render „choreography“ entirely superfluous. Tomlinson's cavernous voice seemed to embody the very interior world of his castle - its sadness, darkness, emptiness - his Hungarian so vivid and expressive in itself that it became another sonority in Bartok's aural palette. He was quite extraordinary. Musically stunning ..." The Arts Desk

"The part of Judith was well taken by Michelle DeYoung but it was the portrayal of Tomlinson that stole the show. At first predatory and prowling - no one can prowl like John Tomlinson - he visibly collapsed into himself as his secrets were exposed. And never was that magnificently gnarled tone put to better use." The Evening Standard

The Voyevoda was Tchaikovsky’s first opera and was based on the comedy A Dream on the Volga, Scenes from Popular Life of the 17th Century by Ostrovsky. It was premiered at the Bolshoi Theatre in 1869 and was very well received. The Russian musicologist Odoyovsky wrote “This opera guarantees a great future for Tchaikovsky.” This performance was recorded in 1982.

Signum are proud to reissue Classical Opera’s debut CD, ‘The A-Z of Mozart Opera’, selected for Gramophone magazine’s annual Critic’s Choice in 2007. Based on the coincidence that Mozart’s first opera (Apollo et Hyacinthus) begins with ‘A’ and his last (Die Zauberflo?te) with ‘Z’, this disc takes the listener on a chronological journey through Mozart’s operatic canon, featuring an aria or ensemble from fifteen of his operas.

“My personal pick for giving this year is the Classical Opera Company’s glorious The A-Z of Mozart Opera, which is fresh, diverse, insightful and illuminating (everything that such recital anthologies usually fail to be). ... “... uniformly superb interpretations... an auspicious de?but recording of intelligence, finesse and quality.” Gramophone

In 1849, the translator, poet and playwright Lev Mey (1822-1862) wrote a drama The Tsar’s Bride based on one of the passages from the era of Ivan the Terrible’s reign. In 1868, Mily Balakirev drew Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s attention to Mey’s work. However, the composer set to creating an opera based on the plot of The Tsar’s Bride only thirty years later. He began his work in February 1898 and completed it in ten months. Almost without changing Mey’s plot, Rimsky-Korsakov enhanced the dramatic qualities of The Tsar’s Bride with his musical means. The opera was premiered in the autumn of 1899 at a Moscow theatre of the industrialist and patron Savva Mamontov with Mikhail Ippolitov-Ivanov being the conductor. The Tsar’s Bride, a sample of realistic drama, is one of the most popular works for musical theatre at the present time. The performance of 1973 presented on these CDs brought together great artists of Russian stage - Evgeny Nesterenko, Galina Vishnevskaya, Vladimir Atlantov, Irina Arkhipova and others.
