Panizza; Martinelli, Rethberg, Tibbett, De Paolis
A great Otello primarily because of Ettore Panizza. Catching all the cast in maybe late maturity, but it’s good to hear some real major league players. No question in their prime they were all splendid singers for these roles. Tibbett is the best of the three on this broadcast. Available on MOoD, but I would love to hear the performance from 2 years earlier to see if Rethberg is any fresher.
