Comments:- There year of the performance on the CDRs issued by Premiere is given in their catalogue as 1961 and one of the cast members is given as «Taddei». I have been unable to find any reference to such a performance in either the «The Voice of an Angel» or in «Il Teatro di San Carlo - La Cronolgia 1737-1987». On the basis of the rest of the cast given by Premiere the performance recorded seems to be that on 22 February 1958. The partial cast listed above is for this performance.

Comments:- Audio and video recordings of performances in the Bunka Kaikan, Tokyo. According to the archive section of the operajaponic website there were 3 performances in Tokyo (28 September, 1, 5 October 1961) and one in Osaka (28 October 1961) and the role of Gerard was shared by Giangiacomo Guelfi and Aldo Protti. According to «Aldo Protti - Un Baritono fatto così» p.143 Protti sang in the performances on October 1 and 28, so presumably Guelfi sang in the other two. Consistent with this the recording on the CDs issued by Opera d'Oro (according to their online catalogue) is of a performance on 1 October 1961 and the role of Gerard is sung by Protti. On the other hand, according to Masatoshi Nozaki (Opera Disc Collection 2nd edition p.397) in the performance on the laser disc issued by King Video and the CD issued by Legato Gerard is sung by Guelfi. According to the review of the LPs issued by Melodram in FANFARE the recording on these discs comes from two performances and Guelfi sings in Acts 1-3 and Protti in Act 4. The DVDR issued on the Encore label is (was?) listed on the website of «berkshire record outlet inc.» (hyperlink in CLORLINK.HTM). Here Aldo Protti is listed as a performer. The recordings issued by VAI are of the performance on 1 October 1961.

Opéra International - septembre 1996 No.205 p.66

------------------------------------------------------------------

Comments:- Recording of a performance in the Deutsche Oper, Berlin (1 September 1962). The chorus sings in German.The VHS cassette issued by Parnassus is listed in their online catalogue S+G 24. The CDRs issued by House of Opera are included in the list of new releases added to their website in December 2003 «03/12/22». Here the three principal singers (Beirer, Tebaldi, Dooley) and the conductor (Patanè) are listed but the performance is attributed to Wien 1962. Patanè did conduct Otello at the Vienna State Opera in 1962, but with a quite different cast. I have therefore assumed that the recording on HOO's CDRs is from Berlin and is possibly the soundtrack of the video recording.

Comments:- This recording is stated in the Standing Room Only, Lyric and HOO catalogues to be of a performance in Philadelphia on 2 December 1969.

Premiere has issued CDRs which are claimed to be of the performance on 2 December 1969 and the partial cast given corresponds to the cast listed by Frank Hamilton.

------------------------------------------------------------------

Comments:- The «On Stage» CDs are labeled as being a recording of a performance in Philadelphia in 1966. However, according to the performance chronology in «Tebaldi - The Voice of an Angel» the only time that Tebaldi, Konya, MacNeil, and Corena sang in Tosca together under Molinari-Pradelli was at the MET between December 31 1969 and January 10 1970 (loc.cit. p.251). The performance on January 10 1970 was broadcast and the recording is presumably of this performance. The CDRs issued by «The Opera Lovers» are listed on the website http://www.operalovers.ca. Here the performance recorded is attributed to the MET on 10 January 1970.
