Donizetti: Anna Bolena - Davy, Simionato, Cassilly, Smith; Gamson. 1957


Listen to a Sample:



  • Rare performance of the superb soprano Gloria Davy in the title role.
  • Giulietta Simionato's rich Giovanna
  • Richard Cassilly's ample tenor meeting the bel canto demands of Percy effortlessly
  • Overall a rare treat to hear such large voices sing Donizetti


  • The sound is a little dull and it takes a turn for the worse during Percy's scene in Act I

In Mono
