La fille du régiment by Gaetano Donizetti( Sound Recording )
4 editions published between 1968 and 1986 in French and held by 473 libraries worldwide
This is not only the incomparable Lily Pons's first performance in Donizetti's comic opera at the Met; it is her only broadcast as Marie. Equal parts dazzling singer and romping tomboy, she is totally charming. No wonder Time magazine put her on its cover. Salvatore Baccaloni is Sergeant Sulpice and Raoul Jobin is the man who steals Pons's heart. In this famous World War II-era broadcast Pons interpolates "La Marseillaise" at the end--bringing a cheering Met audience to its feet

"Conductor Maazel was originally asked the the director of a Munich opera house to compose a new opera for him. Maazel reread Orwell's book and felt it was a perfect choice from which to build an opera, but the director of the opera house suddenly died. Covent Garden later approached Maazel and he went to work on the story's denunciation of a world in which the individual is enslaved to an idea and an absolute power -- represented by Big Brother. He felt that since Orwell used a most realistic and objective approach, the narrative process would be most effective, with every scene unsettling the viewer."--John Sunier, Audiophile Audition
