Original Air Date: 04/10/1982
Haitink; Meier, Sooter, Roar, Macurdy, Blegen, Atherton
This is Haitink’s only Met season, and Meier is pinch-hitting for Verrett who was sick for two other performances (also sung by Johanna Meier) in the run as well. Hard to believe the original casting for Florestan was Sooter, but in any event he gets a fine review from Harriet Johnson of the NY Post. To my knowledge, Verrett’s three performances are her only times in the part.
