DER ROSENKAVALIER
Sep 15 @ 12:00 am – 3:00 am


DER ROSENKAVALIER:Strauss
Original Air Date: 02/18/1956
Kempe; Stevens, Della Casa; Edelmann, Güden, Herbert
MOD Audio SID.19370743
Della Casa, no more beautiful woman ever trod the operatic stage. With Kempe in the pit for his final Met broadcast, this is a wonderful all-around performance. This performance has been on, but not frequently. An absolute rave. If maybe a little late for Stevens, Della Casa and Guden are in absolute prime. Kempe appeared too little and we certainly need his Arabella (in English) with Steber, Guden and London to appear on Sirius. Don’t miss.

WOZZECK
Sep 15 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm


WOZZECK:Berg
Original Air Date: 12/31/2005
Levine; Held, Dalayman, Clark, Fink, Forbis
SID.19370748
Excellent performance on all counts. The 2001 videotaping of Wozzeck performances with Struckmann and Dalayman finally made it into Levine’s 40th anniversary DVD box (but not in print separately. As long as one is looking into Levine boxes, his 40th anniversary CD box contains a different Wozzeck : Jose van Dam, Anja Silja, Ragnar Ulfung, Richard Cassilly, Dieter Weller; March 8, 1980.

ROMÉO ET JULIETTE
Sep 15 @ 9:00 pm – 11:55 pm


ROMÉO ET JULIETTE:Gounod
Original Air Date: 12/06/1986
Domingo; Kraus, Gasdia, Plishka, Harris, Schexnayder
MOD Audio SID.19370749
This broadcast documents Gasdia’s only season at the Met. The run, Kraus’ only times in Romeo at the Met, also featured six performances with Soviero, whom I would have preferred in the broadcast.
