Magda Olivero proves why she was such a creature of the stage in this performance of Il Tabarro. As Giorgetta, she conveys a woman who is fragile and pent up at the same time. Her scene with Michele where they lament the death of their child is particularly touching. Giorgio Fioravanti is a sturdy Michele as is Aldo Bottion as Luigi, but this is Olivero's night. The sound is good.
Magda Olivero sings excerpts from La Fanciulla del west and Madama Butterfly.
