Product Description

CD9100 Puccini Tabarro 1970 Lawrence

Here's a rare example of a live performance by that most captivating of singers, Helen Lawrence, whom I saw in London in the 1970s and 1980s. This is a private recording of Puccini's Il Tabarro, given at the Bloomsbury Theatre, which was recently unearthed by a fellow collector. I regret I have no date or other cast details, but I would estimate that it was recorded in the early 80s. The sound is clear but far from perfect. I hope its rarity will make it interesting to others. The performance had Puccini's original ending, with a soaring phrase for the soprano. Perhaps someone else can provide cast details -- and I hope it might inspire some other uploads of Helen Lawrence's singing. She was a wonderful Fedora (in a performance broadcast by BBC Radio London from St John's, Smith Square) and an enchanting Amelia in Simon Boccanegra. I believe she also sang Lucrezia Borgia to considerable acclaim. She later sang mezzo roles.
