Comments:- *Recording of part of a performance at the MET (12 or 15 December 1979; see OPERA April 1980 pp.356-357). Calvin M. Goodwin has kindly provided me with the following information. When the Gala CD was first issued, although labeled as being from the performance at the MET on 12 December 1979, it was in fact from a performance in 1976 with Martina Arroyo and Misha Raitzin. Subsequently, Gala reissued the CD with a recording of excerpts from a performance in 1979. According to the label on the Gala CD, Barnaba was sung by Louis Quilico, but, according to the MET Annals, Quilico did not sing in any performance of «La Gioconda» with Grace Bumbry that season. The two Barnabas that she sang with were Mario Sereni and Ferdinand Radovan. As the singer is clearly not Sereni it must be Radovan who is in fact listed in the booklet which accompanies the Gala CD!. Radovan sang in two performances (12,15 December 1979) and it is not clear from which the recording (made «in house») issued by Gala comes. The cast given above is that for that on 12 December (date claimed by Gala). There was only one change in the cast for 15 December, Isepo was sung by Andrea Velis. Not all the singers listed above appear on the Gala CD.

Comments:- The CDs issued by Bella Voce are claimed to be of a recording of the performance at the MET on 6 January 1969. If this is correct the recording must be an «in-house» one as this performance was not broadcast. However, according to Calvin M. Goodwin (OPERA-L-Thu 22 Aug 2002 09:13:07 EDT) the recording is not of a performance at the MET at all, but «appears to be a San Francisco broadcast from 1974 (18 October) with Renata Scotto, José Carreras, Judith Forst and Julian Patrick». Recordings of this performance are listed separately. The highlights included as a «fller» with the recording of La fanciulla del west» issued by Bella Voce are however, according to Goodwin, from the performance at the MET (OPERA-L-Wed 18 Sep 2002 21:11:54 EDT)
