    Berganza for me also (Varviso conductor)
    I think this was first stereo recording of this work, very lively and spirited sound which fits the story line

    Mine is the older cover art:

    I purchased all of the Tebaldi/Del Monaco releases I could find, this is a very good one as this style fits Tebaldi nicely

    A strong 2nd choice is the very cheap used Scotto/Domingo version, Milnes very strong here in his role, either one is great choice
