Preparing for their wedding, the valet Figaro learns from the maid Susanna that their philandering employer, Count Almaviva, has designs on her. In her boudoir, the Countess laments her husband's waning love but plots to chasten him, encouraged by Figaro and Susanna. Susanna leads the Count on with promises of a rendezvous in the garden. Alone later that day, Susanna rhapsodizes on her love for Figaro, but he, overhearing, thinks she means the Count. Almaviva chases Cherubino away and sends his wife, who he thinks is Susanna, to an arbor, to which he follows. By now Figaro understands the joke and, joining the fun, makes exaggerated love to Susanna in her Countess disguise. The Count returns, seeing, or so he thinks, Figaro with his wife. Outraged, he calls everyone to witness his judgment, but now the real Countess appears and reveals the ruse. Grasping the truth at last, the Count begs her pardon

"As passionate and uninhibited a Gioconda as anybody could wish," is how one New York critic described the great Renata Tebaldi the opera this season. Her rich, dark soprano embodies all the longing and the terror of the Venetian street singer with a heart of gold. Cesare Siepi is Alvise, the cruel husband whose wife, Laura (Rosalind Elias), is Gioconda's rival for the affections of Enzo (Barry Morrell). Cornell MacNeil is the conniving Barnaba, determined to have Gioconda at any price

Peter Maag conducts a sensational cast in this performance of one of the greatest operas in the repertoire. Cesare Siepi is Don Giovanni, a role he owned for more than two decades, opposite Edda Moser as Donna Anna and Pilar Lorengar as Donna Elvira. George Shirley sings Don Ottavio, Anna's fiancé, who tries to avenge the murder of her father, the Commendatore (John Macurdy). Ezio Flagello is Giovanni's servant and unwilling partner in crime, Leporello

13 editions published between 1949 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a cast to cherish in one of opera's greatest comic masterpieces. Robert Merrill's wily Figaro combines brio with one of the most beautiful baritone voices ever--heard here in its prime. No wonder the clueless Almaviva (an elegant Cesare Valletti) begs him to help win the beautiful Rosina (Roberta Peters at her virtuosic best) and to outwit her determined guardian and the scheming singing teacher (Fernando Corena and Cesare Siepi)

The legendary Cesare Siepi sings one of his most popular roles in this historic broadcast--the effervescent servant Figaro. Together with his bride, Susanna (Nadine Conner), Figaro plots to outwit their imperious master, Count Almaviva (Frank Guarrera), who has been making advances towards Susanna. Fortunately the two have help from Almaviva's disenchanted wife, the Countess (a sensational Victoria de los Angeles). Mildred Miller is delightful as the amorous pageboy Cherubino, and a young Rosalind Elias sings the tiny role of a peasant girl
