From 1954 until 1976 Fernando Corena was the only Dr. Bartolo to appear on the Met airwaves. Of all Corena’s distinctive characterizations, none rank higher than Bartolo. It would be worthwhile for the Met to unearth its experimental taping (with NHK of Japan) from November 1968 so people could get a taste of his visuals as well. The byplay of Corena with Horne, as well as with familiar bass clef tandem, Tozzi are a special delight.
