Tosca, S. 69 (Recorded Live 1961) - Crespin, Di Stefano
Artists:    Regina Crespin, Guiseppe Di Stefano
Release Date:    2016-Apr-08

Famous for her Wagner recordings as Tosca, Regine Crespin is featured on this historical recording. This recording was taken on May 18, 1961 at the Covent Garden London. Along with the Wagner diva, the Orchestra and Chorus of the Royal Opera House performs here, conducted by Edward Downes.
 

Tosca premiered in 1900 at the Teatro Costanzi in Rome. It is one of the world’s most frequently performed operas and is known as much for its gripping drama as for its appealing score. The setting is Rome, where Tosca, a beautiful and famous singer, battles to save her lover Mario from the sadistic police chief Scarpia. The role of Tosca has been long considered a proving ground for great operatic actresses.
