“Don Giovanni” November 19, 2007Posted by Jeff in Italian, Opera, Theater, Tito Gobbi.
From the 1950 Salzburg Festival, my vote for the greatest recorded performance of a Mozart opera …
With Tito Gobbi in the title role; Josef Greindl as the Commendatore, Ljuba Welitsch as Donna Anna, Anton Dermota as Don Ottavio, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf as Donna Elvira, Erich Kunz as Leporello, Alfred Poell as Masetto and Irmgard Seefried as Zerlina. Wilhelm Furtwängler conducts the Vienna Philharmonic.
Thanks once again to the Parterre Box website.
