COSÌ FAN TUTTE:Mozart
Kord; Carson, Di Giuseppe, Tourangeau, Carlson, Boky, Corena
Original Air Date: 12/20/1975
This is most notable for Corena’s only Don Alfonso broadcast. The opera was out of the Met repertory from 1928 until 1951, when Steber, Thebom, and Tucker premiered the hugely successful Alfred Lunt production in English (a Columbia studio recording of this production was made, and holds upeven against Italian language originals). The opera remained in English until 1971, when John Pritchard premiered a fall cast which included Corena, but no broadcast.
