Listen to a Sample:
- For English speakers, and afficiatos of opera in English, this set is a great introduction to Rimsky-Korsakov's sardonic gem of an opera, Le Coq d'or. The entire cast recites the text with such clarity that you could get by fine without ever having to refer to the libretto.
- Norman Treigle brings impeccable vocalism and subtle comic timing to the role of King Dodon.
- It should come as a surprise to no one that Beverly Sills walks away with the show as the Queen of Shemakha.
- None to mention.
