To this musical Philistine, there is no better recording of this opera. The cast is perfect Price, Corelli, Freni & Merrill. This was the debut of both Price & Freni in these roles. Corelli was always the ideal Don Jose as Merrill was the ideal Escamillo. I know there are many other great recording of this opera, but sometimes a miracle happens and this was one of those times. I know I have set myself up to enormous criticism, but I can only state what is in my heart. This is on the other end of the scale of the Resnik, del Monaco & Krause version, which was a disaster in the making; Sutherland's Micaela was its only redemption. Price's portrayal is very sensuous with being vulgar; she is surprisingly adept in this mezzo role. Remember she was great Mozartian and had a solid G3. In the last 50 years, I have always come back to this recording for its sheer beauty. I guess von Karajan was a Svengali!!!
