"A Mandarin announces the law of the land ("Popolo di Pekino: La legge e questa...)": Any man who desires to wed Turandot must first answer her three riddles. If he fails, he will be beheaded. The Prince of Persia has failed and is to be beheaded at moonrise. As the crowd surges towards the gates of the palace, crying for blood, a blind old man is pushed to the ground while his slave-girl, Li?, cries for help. A young man hears her cry and recognizes the old man as his long-lost father Timur, the deposed king of Tartary. The young Prince of Tartary urges his father not to speak his name because he fears the Chinese rulers who have conquered Tartary. Timur tells his son that of all his servants, only Li? has remained faithful to him. When the Prince asks her why, she tells him that once, long ago in the palace, he smiled upon her"-Wikipedia (Sept 2006)

Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

58 editions published between 1945 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

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.

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
