A strangely cut version (about one hour of music is missing). Weigle is mostly relying on loundness. Bronder is pale and unconvincing. The role of Rienzi demands a much bigger voice. Libor seems to feel uncomfortable und sounds shrill as Irene. Better though not great is Mahnke as Adriano. The third female role (Friedensbote) has fallen victim to the cuts.
