    Der Ring, Bayreuth 1972, Stein, Jones, Cox, Stewart, King, Ridderbusch, Ligendza et al. A gap in my collection now filled thanks to Opera Depot’s half price sale which ends tomorrow!

    Tutto Puccini: The Complete Giacomo Puccini Opera Edition



    A misleading title since it is missing a complete Il trittico. There are incomplete historical recordings of Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi, but no Il tabarro. Still I think it is a great set of all the other operas, in recent performances, generally all date from 2005.

    Ah yes, those pesky gaps. I just filled a gap that has existed for three years in purchasing this one. I had the other three brand new for $10 each and finally bit the bullet and paid $40 for this one so I can have it complete (have been listening to a free download, and was not interested in getting it from Opera Depot as I wanted the original commercial release):

    After starthrower mentioned that it was available at the Berkshire Record Outlet for only $90, I’m getting closer to pulling the trigger on it too!

    I wouldn't hesitate too long if you really want it. I doubt they have very many copies. I've learned that recently with some other boxes they had in stock. I hesitated for a day and they were gone. Berkshire is a closeout retailer.

    I am hoping that I don't get an email telling me they are out of stock.
