Available From: 01 March 2007
One of the greatest romantic opera composers ever, this new release from Chandos Opera in English brings together one of the largest selection of Puccini arias, from the broadest number of Puccini operas available – it also brings together the only collection of Puccini arias sung in English. Chandos combines a broad miscellany including Madame Butterfly, Turandot, La Boheme, Tosca, Suor Angelica, Manon Lescant, La fanciulla del West, La Rondine and Gianni Schicchi.

This selection includes Puccini’s most passionate arias, and is a perfect collection for both those keen to discover more about Opera in English, as well established Puccini lovers.

This 2-CD set is available for the price of only one mid-price disc and includes premiere recordings in English – arias from Manon Lescaut and La Rodine.

This is a performance that will undoubtedly give much pleasure and merit repeated hearings.

… an exquisite Marguerite from Mary Plazas. It’s am elegant and immaculate portrayal.
Opera on CHAN 3008(2), La Boheme

Reviews from original releases:
…one of the most formidable, vocally satisfying portrayals of the role of Tosca in years. The thrilling security with which she attacks one top note after another is a delight.

The Guardian on CHAN 3074(2), Tosca
