Verdi: Otello - del Monaco, Souliotis, Colzani; De Fabritiis. Napoli, 1969


Listen to a Sample:


This performance combines Mario Del Monaco in one of his greatest roles along side with Elena Souliotis in the prime of her brief career.   Her sumptuous and smooth voice compliments Del Monaco's wild temperament.   Although it was late in his career he still sings will commitment and his top is still a force to be reckoned with.  The sound is not ideal but the voices come through.
