Costume worn by Caruso

This beautiful blue and gold costume which Enrico Caruso (1873-1921) wore as the Duke in Rigoletto, was given to Jussi Björling by Caruso's widow 1951 in testimony that she regarded him to be her husband's worthy successor. A sound arrangement here makes it possible to compare Caruso's and Björling's voices in the Dukes famous aria.
