Comments:- Recording of a performance the Teatro La Fenice di Venezia (15 December 1966). The cast and conductor listed above are those given in «Il Teatro La Fenice - Cronologia degli Spettacoli 1938-1991» pp.215-216. In January 1967 the company of La Fenice gave two performnces in Die Komische Oper, Berlin. A recording of one of these is listed separately. Some sources list the performance in December 1966 as taking place in Berlin and that in January as taking place in Venice, but this is not what is given in the Performance Chronology of La Fenice (loc.cit.). Also, according to this source all the performances were conducted by Ettore Gracis. I have not been able to check that the two recordings are in fact of different performances as claimed.

Comments:- Recording of a performance of the company of La Fenice in the Komische Oper (East) Berlin (January 1967). A recording of a performance with the same cast at La Fenice in December 1966 is listed separately. I have not been able to check that the two recordings are in fact of different performances as claimed. There is also a video recording of a performance of Norma with Ross and Del Monaco which is also attributed to Berlin, January 1967. This is listed separately.

Comments:- Recording of a performance at the Edinburgh Festival (21 August 1957). Accordingto «Radio Times» (August 16 1957 p.39, August 23 1957 p.34) «La Sonnambula» was broadcast on the BBC Third Programme on 21 August 1957 and on the BBC Home Service on 26 August 1957. According to the cast lists given in «Radio Times» the role of Lisa was to have been sung by Maria Luisa Gaviola on 21 August and by Greta Rapisardi on 26 August. This role was also assigned to Greta Rapisardi in all performances in «The Edinburgh International Festival 1947-1996» by Eileen Miller (p.187). The website of La Scala gives (gave?) Edith Martinelli as singing this role in all performances (as indicated above). The performances on 29 August and 3 September 1957 are reviewed in OPERA October 1957 p.633. According to Dyneley Hussey in «The Listener» (September 5 1957 p.367) «It was all too evident in the first broadcast of La Sonnambula that Mme Callas was doing herself less than justice». It is claimed on Divina's website (click link below) that the recording on their CDs is in stereo but this seems unlikely. The BBC broadcasts were transmitted in mono on medium wave and FM. So if this recording is really in stereo it must have been made in the theatre by someone or by an organisation (BBC or EMI?) with a stereo recorder. Alternatively, it could be a mono recording which has been electronically processed to give a stereo effect. The Columbia studio recording of the same year was in mono but later released in artificial stereo on EMI SLS 5134

A video recording is listed in Live Opera Heaven's «October 2002 Update» (C 1199) with this cast and the date given as 1 August 1961, but with the conductor stated to be Gavazenni. This seem to be incorrect as the conductor on that date was Molinari-Pradelli. Gavazenni did conduct Aida at Verona on 22 and 29 July 1961, but the Aida in those performances was Gabriella Tucci (see the cast listings in the Verona programmes).

Comments:- Audio and video recordings of a performance (or of performances) in the Arena of Verona (3 August 1966). According to OPERA (Festival Issue 1966 pp.105-106) Gencer took over the role of Aida from the indisposed Eleanora Ross. It is stated incorrectly on the H.R.E recording that the conductor is Zubin Mehta. The date given on the Hardy video is 9 August 1966 (or 16 July 1966).

The review in OPERA (September 1987 pp.1072-1073) states the «The casting was erratic: two different Radames, three Aidas, and two Kings in five days», but the cast given for the performance on 5 January is the same as that given above. However, the conductor is stated (like by House of Opera) to be Romano Gandolfi.
