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 live broadcast from the Met (December 16, 1950) of the Rossini favorite features the legendary Lily Pons in the role of Rosina, with the sterling young tenor Giuseppe di Stefano as Count Almaviva, a role he never recorded commercially, and baritone Giuseppe Valdengo, well known for his recordings with Toscanini, as Figaro. Alberto Erede conducts the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and Chorus, with the cast also including Salvatore Baccaloni as Don Bartolo and Jerome Hines as Don Basilio. From the Label
