Weber: Der Freischütz (In Italian) - Jurinac, F. Albanese, Christoff, Moscucci, Bruscantini, Vinco; Gui. Rai Torino, 1955


Listen to a Sample:


Der Freischütz has fallen out of favor in recent years.  I must admit whenever I hear it I picture men in Lederhosen and women with blond braids.  So when I cam across this performance in Italian I knew it would be good fun.   Bratwurst alla Milanese.   Sena Jurinac proves once again that she could sing almost everything.   Boris Christoff is a luxury as Kaspar.  In the end, great singers can make almost any opera work in any language.
