Franco Corelli’s only recording as Enzo with Eileen Farrell as Gioconda. A dream cast! “La Gioconda” lives up to its nickname of “night of the six stars” in this tremendously powerful live performance. This is “stand up and sing” “let ‘er rip” singing at its very best!!! Paul Jackson, in “Sign-Off For The Old Met,” wrote about this performance: “Merrill’s Barnaba is … assured and engaging. … With Corelli as duet combatant, Merrill can unleash all his tonal splendor without handicap. …Corelli’s voice and style are made for this opera. I do not know that I have ever heard the tenor in more gratifying vocal form… It is immensely heartening to see Farrell enter into the fray and, more important, to see her emerge victorious. … Rankin and especially Farrell are effective belligerents.”
