    Just got this Friday and am really liking it. Live performance and a great coloratura soprano Rosina.


    However, the one above is from 1980s and is a brand prone to CD bronzing. I had a hard time ripping the tracks and the label side was cloudy. Consequently I got a 50% refund so it only cost me $3.50 shipped, but I would rather have gotten the recent re-release of the same opera, but for the ugly cover. This is not the first Nuova Era set I have had that was messed up by bronzing. There is a writeup on it on Wikipedia even. So this is the recent release I wish I had got instead:
