London Philharmonic Orchestra Glyndebourne Chorus Raymond Leppard – conductor

Here is the second of Raymond Leppard's famed realizations of a Cavalli opera (there might be a third in a few days). Like L'Ormindo, La Calisto was recorded by Argo but this live performance from the first season of the production at Glyndebourne (I have no specific date) has a few different singers than the recording, most significantly Irmgard Stadler instead of Teresa Kubiak as Giunone.

Calisto was also broadcast from the 1971 Proms but I have never run across a recording of that performance. Certainly the glory is Janet Baker in her great tour-de-force as Diana and Giove disguised as Diana, along with a radiant young Ileana Cotrubas in the title role.

Important Information!!!
USA Telephone (404) 200-4776 We sell only opera recordings. The recordings are sent to you in paper sleeves with no tray card or inserts, just the raw discs with printed labels. These recordings are of nonprofessional quality that are in the public domain. The quality of these old opera recordings is not very good and they are meant for collectors and educational purposes only. Most of them are 30 or 40 years old, so they might be blurry, colors faded, and not sound very good, but they might not be available elsewhere. Please note that most of our recordings do not have tracks, they have 1 long track per disc.
