Description
This live 1961 performance of Leoncavallo's verismo melodrama starred noted Italian singers in a Tokyo stage production , along with a Japanese symphony orchestra and chorus.

"Soprano Gabriella Tucci and baritone Aldo Protti—two consistently underrated performers—here display handsome sound, sure technique and … dramatic involvement…. But the night belongs to the notoriously unsubtle, gloriously unbuckled Mario del Monaco. A critic once wrote of del Monaco, 'For this singer, life begins at forte.' True enough—but what a forte! Virile and brazen of tone, with a swagger to his phrasing and trumpeting high notes, del Monaco owned dramatic-tenor roles such as the wife-murdering Canio in 'Pagliacci.' … His performance of the aria 'Vesti la giubba' may well be the most histrionic you'll see. But it also touches the music's elemental power—vocal and theatrical—more vividly than any other performance I've witnessed."—Washington Post
