RUGGERO LEONCAVALLO (1857-1919): Zingari.
Catalogue Number: 05W006
Reference: GB 2585-2
Description: Premiered in London in 1912, Zingari’s libretto was inspired by Pushkin’s poem “The Gypsies”. Having had considerable success at the time, the opera left soon the repertoire of theaters following the composer's death. Today, we can affirm that Zingari isn’t a poor quality repeat of Pagliacci, and Leoncavallo’s energy and creativity had not abandoned him. No libretto/translation info. Denia Mazzola Gavazzeni (soprano), Giuseppe Veneziano (tenor), Armando Likaj, Giorgio Valerio (baritone), Coro Ab Harmoniae, Orchestra Filarmonica Italiana; Daniele Agiman.
