Nobody has mentioned yet the performances (in English) featuring Janet Baker as Maria (in the Malibran version, which is what DiDonato will be singing). The best of them is the earlier one (on the Ponto label) recorded in 1973, and with Pauline Tinsley in the role of Elisabeth. It's sung in English of course, but it is still my preferred version (along with Caballe at La Scala with Verrett).

You're still looking, buy the DVD on Erato.

It's a Met performance with DiDonato as Maria and van den Heever as Elizabeth.

Exelent sound and a wonderful surprising performance .

 

Seconded.
