Libretto by Gaetano Rossi
Recorded at the Zurich Opera House

Linda di Chamounix has become one of the best showcases for coloratura sopranos. The leading exponent of this singing style, Edita Gruberova, takes the lead. Gruberova is famed for her performances of technically demanding roles (Queen of the Night, Zerbinetta).

This Zurich production shows the real value of Linda di Chamounix, not only thanks to Edita Gruberova but equally to the excellent level of the whole cast.

Tenor Deon van der Walt adds support to Gruberova's star-turning performance. The cast also includes the outstanding Armando Ariostini as Antonio and Don Bernardini as Carlo.

It is a remarkable overall achievement and it is clear that this production from the Zurich Opera will live long in the memory.
