Opera d'Oro presents Grand Tier, a deluxe edition of the most beloved Opera d'Oro performances, with original artwork by Rafal Olbinski and Opera d'Oro's best remastered sound! Featuring a 48-page booklet with historic photos, a complete French libretto and new original English translation, and an essay on the performance by Robert Levine, this is a sparkling, delightful performance of this bel canto masterpiece, starring the legendary American soprano Beverly Sills at her peak in the title role.

"The recording is in shiny stereo sound and the energy level, in front of a live, affectionate and responsive audience, is contagious. The orchestra play wonderfully and the chorus is excellent. There is, of course, an extraordinary studio recording of the work with Joan Sutherland and Luciano Pavarotti, but it never quite captures the true spirit of this opera the way this one does. Sills was never better or in better company; this is a benchmark performance." - Robert Levine
