Overview

This historic performance originally broadcast via the Metropolitan Opera's Saturday afternoon radio series has never before been available internationally in an authorized version from an original source. Now, Sony Classical is presenting the first commercial release of this material, newly remastered from the original source and with the imprimatur of the Met.

This classic performance (February 15, 1958) of one of the repertory's most popular operas stars the passionate singing of two paragons of Italian style, soprano Licia Albanese as the doomed seamstress Mimi and tenor Carlo Bergonzi as the poet Rodolfo. The conductor is Thomas Schippers, with the cast also including Mario Sereni as Marcello and Laurel Hurley as Musetta. From the Label
