MP3 Download Andrea Chenier - Dublin 1957 Mancini/Galie/Mastrangelo
With amazing generosity a friend has given me a recording which is 54 years old.
In 1957 Caterina Mancini came to Dublin to sing in their 3rd Italian Opera
Festival, and the operas for her that year were Aida opposite Umberto Borso
and Andrea Chenier with Antonio Galie. Fortunately there is a recording of the
Giordano opera and the sound is vivid and clear. The Gaiety Theatre was
apparently not full for this presentation, the name of Giordano not being as
familiar then as it is now.
