    I think so too. Because of the so called "display" arias it gets a bad rap sometimes.
    But i'm ok with them. They can be very dramatic when done well. Like Callas.
    But the music is fantastic.

    Such a beautiful opera. I used to have the Neumann with Beňačková on LP, but this superb Mackerras just trumps it, I think. Fleming's Czech may not be as idiomatic (mine isn't good enough to tell) but she sings gloriously, mostly devoid of those mannerisms I sometimes find irritating. Heppner is also excellent as are the rest of the Czech cast. Terrific sound as well.

    A good way to round off my mini Dvořák listening sessions.

    There are 2 different issues of this set.
    The first has 3 cds.
    It was then reissued on 2 cds.
    The first is easy to get.
    The second is very hard to find.
    I was lucky to find it.
