Remastered in ultra-high quality 96kHz/24-bit audio at Abbey Road Studios in 2014 under the supervision of long-term Decca balance engineer Philip Siney.

[Pavarotti] is an intensely characterful Duke: an unmistakable rogue but a charmer, too... [Sutherland] is glowingly beautiful as well as supremely assured technically. Milnes makes a strong Rigoletto, vocally masterful rather than strongly characterised.” - Penguin Guide, 2010 edition

“The most impressive Sparafucile on recording is [Martti] Talvela... Both his high E-flat and his low F at the end of his duet with Rigoletto are unforgettable.” - Opera News, New York, 2013

Cast:
- Il Duca: Luciano Pavarotti
- Gilda: Joan Sutherland
- Rigoletto: Sherrill Milnes
