Seldom has the Bohemian world of 19th-century Paris, with its young writers, painters, philosophers, and the women they love, been brought to life more vividly than in this broadcast. Young Giuseppe di Stefano's charismatic Rodolfo is the embodiment of romantic ardor, and Bidú Sayão brings charm and personality to her portrayal of Mimì. Together they make a couple to sweep audiences off into the land of first love at its most beguiling. The great Cesare Siepi, in his first Met season, is a delightful Colline

Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

18 editions published between 1945 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every once in a while the operatic stars align to create that rare performance that makes a familiar work sound brand new. The great Verdi baritone Leonard Warren delivers one of his most sublime portrayals as the hunchbacked jester Rigoletto who, thanks to his own twisted machinations, looses the only thing he cares about. Bidú Sayão is his beloved daughter Gilda, who captures the attention of the lascivious Duke, sung by the elegant and sweet-voiced Jussi Bjoerling. This is Verdi singing at its best

Don Pasquale by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

11 editions published between 1940 and 1998 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When an elderly, miserly bachelor marries a smart young woman, there's always trouble ahead. In Donizetti's version of the ancient story that trouble is the source of unending humor and delight for the audience--doubly so when the great singing actor Salvatore Baccaloni (in his first Met season) is the old curmudgeon, Don Pasquale. Of course, with the ever-enchanting Bidu Sayão as the bride, who could blame him for falling in love? This is witty vocal acting at its best
Manon by Jules Massenet( Recording )

16 editions published between 1976 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who can resist the charms of Manon or remain unmoved by her fate? Ruth Ann Swenson takes on Massenet's title heroine, the equally beautiful and high-spirited young girl who turns her back on life in a convent when she meets the handsome des Grieux (Giuseppe Sabbatini)--only to be seduced by the promise of a luxurious existence as the mistress of the rich old Brétigny (Kim Josephson). When she learns that des Grieux, desperate she has left him, is about to take holy orders, she changes her mind--but it is too late, and their love story ends in tragedy
