Puccini's Manon Lescaut sounds stunning here in fabulous full stereo - one of three experimental stereo opera recordings made by Decca in the summer of 1954 in Rome. This Pristine XR remastering demonstrates just how incredibly well these performances were captured all those years ago!
Renata Tebaldi is wonderful in the title role, opposite leading tenor Mario Del Monaco, with the Santa Cecilia opera company and orchestra under the capable baton of Francesco Molinari-Pradelli.
