The love, longing, despair, and tragedy in Puccini's early score that made this opera his first big success are personified by a remarkable cast and conductor in this touching performance. Jussi Björling is the young des Grieux in love with the title heroine. The entrancing Licia Albanese plays the object of his affection, and conductor Dimitri Mitropoulos pulls out all the emotional and dramatic stops in his exploration of Puccini's genius

Every once in a while the operatic stars align to create that rare performance that makes a familiar work sound brand new. The great Verdi baritone Leonard Warren delivers one of his most sublime portrayals as the hunchbacked jester Rigoletto who, thanks to his own twisted machinations, looses the only thing he cares about. Bidú Sayão is his beloved daughter Gilda, who captures the attention of the lascivious Duke, sung by the elegant and sweet-voiced Jussi Bjoerling. This is Verdi singing at its best
