    Besides the NAXOS set, this may be the very best Sonnambula on CD from a combined perspective of singing, orchestra, and sound quality:

    Well I finally settled on 6 of my 25 Sonnambula sets to put on my player (named by Amina):

    Gruberova
    Orgonasova
    Sutherland 1963 MET
    Moffo
    Callas 1955 Bernstein
    Scotto 1971

    And there's another performance from the same run with the same cast.

    You can find further details of the Cologne and Edinburgh performances on the Divina Records website.

    This must be the other Edinburg recording (and the one I have) or did they just get the date wrong:

    Ummm, now I can't say that I have every Sonnambula recording. Worse, who knows what recording the one I posted above on the Melodram label is. One could assume August 7, but...

    Only safe bet is to buy all four Divina Records sets. Well, maybe three as the date on my Cologne set should be valid as the 4 July 1957 set.

    So potentially I need three more Callas sets!

    I agree with your assessment.
