“A classic 1954 interpretation with a complex geisha from de Los Angeles, a suave Pinkerton from di Stefano and a memorable consul from Gobbi. Gianandrea Gavazzeni conducts as to the manner born.”
“The performance has many advantages over the later, stereo version. De los Angeles's tone is even more beautiful, Di Stefano is a more ardent Pinkerton, and Tito Gobbi. unexpectedly cast as a rugged Sharpless, uses that small role to point some of the set's most memorable moments...The Regis mono transfer is kind to the voices, which are given a full presence.”
