The Essential Opera Series is very good to the point of a must have. This series has nearly all of the finest singers and orchestras. No re-mastering of old pieces. Each track is splendid with sound that can't be beaten. Some of the series has 2 discs. This one has only one, but it is my favorite. The theme of the series is to give you the favorite selections of the most famous operas. This Disc is from 1991, but they are still available and the operas don't go out of style. I bought this copy used, but can't be told from new.
This is great while riding in your car.
