Rigoletto, RCA, Verdi
Rigoletto is fortunate to have many good recordings that capture the drama as well as the opportunities for vocal display that are inherent in this breakthrough masterpiece among Verdi's operas. My own favorite version has been RCAs classic 1956 recording made with Met Opera stars Robert Merrill, Roberta Peters, Giorgio Tozzi, and of course Jussi Bjorling, all in prime voice and with Janel Perlea leading the Rome Opera forces.
