Pavarotti's version of La Bohème with Mirella Freni was featured in an Gramophone article called "Ten of the best—the essential operas," which discussed great recordings of some of the most-performed masterpieces. His singing in Puccini's Madama Butterfly (which stars Freni as Cio Cio San) is so beautiful you forget for a time that Pinkerton is such a cad. But it's not all about this celebrated pairing: the CD offers the ravishing "Flower Duet," the "Humming Chorus," and much more.
