Leontyne Price is arguably one of the greatest sopranos of the 20th century. This amazing set contains ten of her best opera recordings made on the RCA Red Seal label.

These recordings have been newly remastered from the original analogue tapes using 24 bit / 96 kHz technology.

"With Leontyne Price and Richard Tucker in top form and with Leinsdorf's efficient and unsentimental conducting, the present version, now at budget price, is a worthy addition to anyone's collection of Butterflies." (MusicWeb on the Madama Butterfly)
