3.0 out of 5 stars Too late June 15 2014

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There actually have been several very fine recordings of this opera. I always go back to the EMI recording with Treigle,Domingo,Caballe cond. by Rudel. It doesnt get much better. The Decca recordings...early on with Siepe,Delmonaco,Tebaldi and then later with Ghiarov,Pavarotti,Freni and Caballe in the Elena role are also very good. This live performance just doesnt hold up. Furlanetto is a very good Mefistofele.But it comes late in his career and there is strain on the upper notes.But hes effective.Theodssiu is a squally slavic Margherita and not really easy on the ear. If Filionoti had been recorded several years ago in this role, he would have been ideal.There are moments of lovely singing here and there.But the last several years of pushing this lyric voice into the heavier rep has damaged areas of the voice.Too bad. The conductor is O.K.,nothing special and I find the chorus a little thin and recessed. The chorus has alot to sing and needs to have a much fuller sound.The Palermo orchestra is again O.K. without anything special.I will always go back to the EMI to hear this work done well. Not recomended.
