Tito Gobbi was one of the biggest stars on the international opera scene in the '40s and '50s, and he lent his strong baritone voice and forceful personality to a number of memorable roles. Tito Gobbi in Pagliacci & Highlights From Guglielmo Tell includes a filmed version of Ruggiero Leoncavallo's "Pagliacci" shot in 1949, with Gobbi as the celebrated weeping clown and featuring Gina Lollobrigida as Nedda (though Onelia Fineschi dubs in her arias). Also appearing in this collection is a rare condensed version of Gioachino Rossini's "Guglielmo Tell", which attempts to reduce the piece to a 25-minute performance; Gabriella Gatti also appears in the cast.
