Boito: Mefistofele - Siepi, Carreras, Neblett, Neblett; Guadagno. London, 1972


Listen to a Sample:



  • The headline of this recording should read: "A young José Carreras gets an important opportunity in a notoriously difficult role and triumphs!" Carreras sings with lyricism and dramatic commitment all while effortlessly navigating the treacherous score.
  • Cesare Siepi's Mefistofele is overwhelming in beauty and malevolence.
  • Carol Neblett does double-duty as Margharita and Elena, and shines in both roles.


  • The sound is a distant.

Carol Neblett sings "In questa reggia" from Turandot
