First Listen: Leoncavallo Zazà

Leoncavallo's Zaza

Leoncavallo is best remembered for his opera Pagliacci, but Zazà was a big success in its time too. Now Opera Rara has revived it in this recording by the BBC Singers and BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Maurizio Benini. The cast includes Ermonela Jaho in the title role, Stephen Gaertner, Riccardo Massi and Patricia Bordon.
