Sunday Afternoon at the Opera - Verdi: Il Trovatore
Sunday Afternoon at the Opera host Keith Brown writes:
Here's another gem in the Sony Classical series "The Metropolitan Opera. " Il Trovatore was taped live in performance at the Met on February 4, 1961. The veteran Italian conductor Fausto Cleva took charge of the Met Orchestra and Chorus. Getting top billing in the singing cast are Italian tenor Franco Corelli as Manrico and the American mezzo Leontyne Price as Leonora. This particular item in the Sony "Met" series came out in 2011 on two compact discs.
