Renowned Mozartian Sir Colin Davis conducts an exceptional recording of the last of Mozart's three Da Ponte operas, whose comic tale deftly balances humanity, irony, pain and humour in a complex battle of the sexes. A stellar cast, including Kiri Te Kanawa as one of the two sisters, joins the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House in a polished account of one of the composer's finest scores.
Recorded by the BBC Radio 3, live from the Royal Opera House 1981.
