A collaborative enterprise, opera brings together the works of composers, librettists, singers, musicians, and conductors into this most dramatic of art forms. This collection features highlights from some of the genre's most-loved masterworks, ranging from the elegance of Mozart's Don Giovanni and the enchantments of The Magic Flute to the raw emotion of Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana and Leoncavallo's Pagliacci. The lighthearted japes of Rossini's Barber of Seville contrast with the tragic catharsis of Verdi's Aida and La Traviata, the sultry allure of Bizet's Carmen, and the rhapsodic love songs of Puccini's La Bohème, Madama Butterfly, and Tosca.

"Naxos's spirited new recording of II barbiere di Siviglia seems for all the world to have the crackling spontaneity of a live performance…. The cast is bursting with future stars…. Vargas emerges as the most seductively charming Almaviva on records, as well as one of the most vocally accomplished…. It is a revelation to hear [Sonia] Ganassi's rich contralto."—Fanfare

"Orgonasova [as Mimi in La Bohème] sings expressively, with touching characterization and a real knowledge … of what can be achieved by quietness and purity of tone."—Gramophone
