The Met does Barber too much and this kind of casting from 37 years ago is pretty weak tea, Corena and Tozzi excepted. Corena the supreme Bartolo for 2.5 decades has 10 Met broadcasts, eight of them have been on Sirius, and two of them are on Met Player. Almost any of them are more worthy of your time than this one. I love Corena’s Bartolo ( he has 10 broadcasts!!! pick another) , but this is no star outing from the Met which has many fine Barbieres. There are other ways to honor Rosalind Elias.
