Ponchielli: La Gioconda - Souliotis, Marti, Dunn, Milnes, Ventriglia, Bainbridge; Guadagno. London, 1969


Listen to a Sample:



  • Elena Souliotis is in her element as Gioconda, giving of her voice as if it were her last performance. Although this approach would ultimately catch up with her, curtailing her career at an early age, this performance finds her at a point where the voice could still meet the demands she placed on it.
  • The rest of the cast manages to match Souliotis' commitment and vocal intensity, particularly Mignon Dunn as Laura and Sherrill Milnes as Barnaba.


  • None to mention.
