Puccini: Tosca - Tebaldi, Di Stefano, Taddei; De Fabritiis. Rio, 1954


Listen to a Sample:


This performance of Tosca joins the legendary Renata Tebaldi with the equally legendary Giuseppe Di Stefano.  Caught here in their absolute prime, both sing with assurance and amazing stamina.  Tebaldi in particular delivers a beautiful "Vissì d'arte", which she encores (Di Stefano also encores "E lucevan le stelle.")  Giuseppe Taddei is a captivating Scarpia and Oliviero De Fabritiis keeps the action moving.  The sound is fair.
