    An Evening at the Opera with vocal excerpts from Rigoletto (Verdi), Carmen (Bizet), Die Fledermaus (Johann Strauss II), Der Freischütz (Weber), Pagliacci (Leoncavallo), and Cosi fan tutte (Mozart), featuring the solist and orchestra of the European Opera Company.

    The cover illustration is by Otto Rado. Greco Adornado (Gans, 1925) is used for most type. It’s supported by caps from Karnak Medium (Ludlow, 1931) for the smallest line. The record was released by Plymouth Records (P-12–81) probably sometime in the 1950s. In addition to the cover in yellow, red, and blue as shown here, there is also a variant in pink, blue, and black.

    1. Strange… Like and Add to Set buttons disappear on this post when I log in.

    2. Thanks for the notification, Ufuk. We’ll look into this.

      [edit: It’s fixed.]
