La Sonnambula is one of Vincenzo Bellini's finest operas because of it's strong character. The melodies and orchestra accompniament have a distinct whimsical, pastoral flavor entirely appropriate for the setting of a rural, country village. I'm afraid I was not too taken by Leonard Bernstien's conducting as some of the critics seem to be. To me, it lacks subtlety. When he's slow he's REALLY, REALLY slow and when he's fast, he's REALLY, REALLY fast. Track list identifies main singers but omits timings. It marked the second occasion in which Callas and Leonard Bernstein worked together in an opera house.

Description: Maria Callas had worked with Leonard Bernstein at La Scala on Medea in 1953. Here, in '55, they were together again for a very different heroine. While Medea is all vengeance and rage, Amina in Sonnambula is a delicate, sweet, village girl whose sleepwalking confuses the locals into thinking she's unfaithful to her fiancé. Of course, she's exonerated and all ends happily. This role is one of the tests of a great bel canto soprano. There are miles of coloratura, grand leaps, long-breathed melodies, and high notes galore.
