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.

The star-crossed lovers in this version (February 1, 1947) of Shakespeare's tale are the celebrated Swedish tenor Jussi Björling and the sweet-voiced Brazilian soprano Bidú Sayão, both in roles they never recorded commercially. Emil Cooper conducts, with the cast also including John Brownlee as Mercutio and Nicola Moscona as Frère Laurent. From the Label
