    CD
    3p Karajan Scala
    2p Mehta NPO
    1p Gavazzeni Scala 64 (Moscow).

    I saw a Youtube streaming of a modern Teatro Real performance to introduce myself to the opera. Negrín's 2019 Production is pretty faithful to the libretto in costumes and lighting (though modern scenery). But oooooh such dreadful singing (looks at the watch repeatedly, checks Twitter...).

    audio

    previtali/gencer/mdm/bastianini/barbieri - 3pts
    cellini/milanov/bjorling/warren/barbieri - 2pts
    mehta/price/domingo/milnes/cossotto - 1pt

    never a huge fan of mdm but he is really good in this one. the quartet in the cellini is a little vocally more consistent but the previtali is more dramatically vivid. the mehta is the stereo option, but it's pretty far behind the other two as a performance for me.


    video

    again, the previtali/gencer/mdm/bastianini/barbieri - 6 pts

    mdm is hilarious in this--he plays manrico like a complete lunatic. it actually works surprisingly well as a characterization--i never find myself wondering why on earth manrico would be doing all the idiotic things he does the way i do with other productions because the answer is right on the screen--he's an eye-rolling loon.

    6p - Karajan La Scala

    6p - Previtali/Gencer/MDM/Bastianini

    (MDM’s acting was probably never his great strength especially compared to Bastianini’s rather refined di Luna)

    audio -

    cellini/bjorling/vdla/warren/merrill - 6 pts

    for me, bjorling is the greatest canio on record (unless you count caruso), and the supporting cast is superb. if you absolutely need stereo, i think domingo and corelli's recordings are very good, and while i don't love the vocal performances that much, the karajan/bergonzi has enjoyably plush and luxurious orchestral playing.
