Decca proudly presents the Complete Works by Giuseppe Verdi in a single 75 CD box set.
From the ever-popular “Aida” to the obscure “Alzira,” all 28 of Giuseppe Verdi's operas are here as well as his Sacred Works, Arias, Songs, Ballet Music, the String quartet and other rarities.
Among the gems in this collection is a classic "La Traviata" from 1976, starring soprano Ileana Cotrubas, Domingo and baritone Sherrill Milnes, conducted by Carlos Kleiber. Also, a marvelous "Simon Boccanegra" from a year later, with soprano Mirella Freni, Carreras, baritone Piero Cappuccilli and bass Nicolai Ghiaurov, conducted by Claudio Abbado, and Karajan’s immortal recording “Aida” with Renata Tebaldi, Carlo Bergonzi and Giulietta Simionato.
Two booklets are included with cast lists, plot summaries and some background on each opera.
This carefully curated edition brings together the best available versions of these works. A once-in-a-liftetime collection of the finest recordings from Decca, Deutsche Grammophon, and the former Philips label.
