The Garaventa Lituani was broadcast by Italian radio in 1979 and first
released by MRF Records on LP. It was later released on CD by Italian Opera
Rarities. I don't know whether or not it is in the catalogue now on some other label.
I like the opera very much as I do pretty much everything else I have ever
heard by Ponchielli, including a Marion de Lorme  with Casanova. In fact, I wish
that somebody would get around to doing Figliuol Prodigo and Mori di Valenza.
The first was created by Tamagno and the second by Martinelli.

As for Hayashi, she also sang Bellini's lovely Bianca e Fernando for RAI in
1976. The latter was also originally released on MRF Records.
