recording the world’s rarest operas.
Opera Rara, the brainchild of Patric Schmid and Don White, has been in the business of bringing back forgotten operatic repertoire of the nineteenth century for the last thirty-five years. Operas once threatened with extinction have now been brought vividly back to life through the Opera Rara recordings: the catalogue includes complete operas as well as highlights and compilations, anthologies and recordings featuring outstanding soloists.
