About

Heralded by a priceless photo of Mario Del Monaco, this classic 1954 recording of Rigoletto is restored to the catalogue.

It was recorded about the same time as Erede’s Otello sessions (also with Del Monaco and Aldo Protti). Del Monaco gives a powerful rendition of the Duke and Hilda Gueden’s crystalline purity gives Gilda all the innocence and largesse of heart that the role demands.
