La Favorita - Donizetti (classic 1976 staging of opera starring Kraus, Cortez & Bruson 2 CDs)

£6.99

Product description

La Favorita was Gaetano Donizetti's (1797-1848) much-loved 1840 work. The synopsis concerns a high-society love triangle in Fourteenth Century Spain, involving King Alfonso XI, his mistress Leonara, and her own lover, Fernando. Taking place simultaneously, however, are the Moorish invasions of the nation.

One of the main attractions, to this particular 1976 staging, was the wonderful performance, by the Spanish tenor, Alfredo Kraus (cover photo and photo Two, with Viorica Cortez), as the character Fernando. Certainly, it impressed the opera journalist, Giorgio Gualerzi, who had been following Kraus' career, for twenty years ... Gualerzi wrote of Kraus, in an April '76 staging of La Favorita : "When I attended the third performance of this more-than-respectable revival of La Favorita, the title could as well have been Il Favorito. This may give some ideas of the magnificent account that Alfredo Kraus gave of himself ... his technical mastery, elegance of style, and refinement of taste are well known".

Meanwhile soprano Viorica Cortez, was noted, for her subtle accentuation and acting ability, while Renato Bruson (left photo Three), as King Alfredo, is nowadays known as an irreplaceable Donizetti baritone.
