"Just like with Wagner there was no possibility to perform it in the original language. If the "Amazon Customer" whose only aim in life seems to be showing off and playing God by explaining why he knows so much better than aknowledged experts like Steane, Porter and Kesting KNEW ANYTHING he'd know that too! Tebaldi sang Tatyana in Italian too!
That such a RARITY was performed came about through Callas' personal wish and fight for the revival of forgotten masterpieces. Callas shines as Ifigenia, I'd rather have this by her than nothing. Also, check out her Armida and Alceste... Now if these were uncut, it would be HEAVEN!"
