A Box Set of FOUR 33rpm LP Records: ALP 1289-1292 VERDI DON CARLO, featuring the Orchestra and Chorus of the Opera House, Rome conducted by Gabriele Santini. It was issued on the MONO EMI red and gold label, making it a first pressing. It was recorded in the Opera House, Rome. The cast includes: Boris Christoff, Mario Filippeschi and Tito Gobbi. Sung in Italian. Included is a 12-page booklet containing historical and explanatory notes written in English.

The records themselves are in very good to excellent condition, with very few surface scratches or marks. Superb clear sound quality (one of the best I've heard from an ALP recording) with NO jumps, or background crackle and only a few random soft ticks here and there over the entire recording. Some very light spindle wear. Labels extremely clean with no discernible spider marks - near mint, in fact.

The box is in very good sturdy condition with a bit of bumping to the corners and some rubbing to the edges. One corner has a small split. Some loss of lettering to the spine.

The original inner sleeves are in excellent condition, with no wear to speak of. The booklet is in good condition, with no tears or writing. Overall, this is an excellent item, a virtually crystal clear recording, and only those few random ticks (around 20 in all) over a total of eight sides.

Don Carlo was produced in Paris on March 11th, 1867. The libretto was by Mery and Du Locle and, contrary to his dictatorial custom, Verdi left it almost exactly as it stood. After the first performance Verdi wrote to a friend that the opera had not had the success he had hoped for and there were detractors who said the work fell "between two schools". Although only twelve performances were given during the season, media criticism was mainly favourable. At least three versions have been made of the opera and different companies when producing it cut or restore passages or interchange scenes in attempts to give it a sharper unity of design. Verdi later made some alterations to the score and had the libretto updated, cutting out the first act, and the new version was produced in 1884, some seventeen years after its premiere. It is this version that has been recorded on this box set.
