Description
In this rare 1971 concert performance of the first act of Bellini’s bel canto masterpiece, the legendary Catalan soprano ("La Superba") is commanding yet vulnerable in "Casta diva," the Druid priestess's song to the moon. Joining Caballé in the excellent cast are Margreta Elkins (Adalgisa), Robleto Merolla (Pollione), and James Morris. Also from the Teatro Real in Madrid is a bonus live recital (1979) with arias and songs by Handel, Vivaldi, Cherubini, and Granados.

"In 1980 Renata Tebaldi was asked what she thought of the state of singing. Her answer was unequivocal: there is just one prima donna left, Montserrat Caballé. And in the same year Magda Olivero, the last of the hell-for-leather verismo sopranos and no mean diva herself, opined that 'we singers should get down on our knees and thank God for a voice like Caballé's'."—Gramophone

"If I want to listen to Norma or Puritani I listen to Caballé, not to Callas. It's the sound, the phrasing, the incredible musicianship."—Critic Rodney Mimes
