Comments:- *Recording(s) of a performance (or of performances) in the Takarazuka Hall, Tokyo. According to Masatoshi Nozaki in «OPERA DISC COLLECTION» (1st edn, p.194; 2nd edn p.250) there are two recordings of performances with the same cast. According to him that on Paragon ANF 54 (CD), KING 63IL 14-5 (laser disc), KING KILM 108/9 (laser disk) and Memories HR 4406/7 (CD) is of a performance given on 4 February while that on Seven Seas K38Y30 (CD) and Frequenz 043-010 (CD) is of a performance given on 7 February. The year is given as 1959 in the 1st edition and 1958 in the 2nd edition. According to the archive of Opera Japonica (http://www.operajaponica.org/archives) Otello was only performed in Japan in 1959 (4,7,10, 13 February in Tokyo and 2 March in Osaka). It appears that the recording on Melodram, Rodolphe, Paragon, and Bel Canto Society is of the performance on 4 February 1959. The date given on the DVD issued by NHK is 4 February 1959. It appears that this is derived from a television transmission (or «simulcast») in which the video broke down at «Ora e per sempre addio..», but the sound continued and NHK have patched in a still of Mario del Monaco at this point. See OPERA-L Wed. 24 Aug 2005 00:30:33 EDT. The Melodram LPs are advertized in GRAMOPHONE January 1984 p.872. According to James Calvert (OPERA-L Thu, 24 Oct 2002 08:099:32 -400) the sound on the CDs issued by Opera d'Oro is a semitone sharp. The DVDR issued on the Encore label is (was?) listed on the website of «berkshire record outlet inc.» (hyperlink in CLORLINK.HTM). Here the conductor is stated incorrectly to be Oliviero de Fabritiis.

The date of the performance is given here as 19 November 1957, but this must be incorrect as Elektra was performed in the Royal Opera House on that date. It seems more likely that the recording is of a performance in October or November 1955 when the new production opened. The performance on 17 October 1955 is reviewed in OPERA December 1955 p.791-796. The recording issued by The Royal Opera House is of the performance on 19 October 1955. According to Radio Times Issue dated October 16-22 1955 p.19 the performance on 17 October 1955 was broadcast by the BBC Third Programme.

The recording is presumably of a performance at Covent Garden in May 1974 (HOO gives 17 May) where 7 performances were given with the above cast except that Rodrigo was sung by Adrian De Peyer in only six of them (see OPERA October 1974 p.913). I do not know if he sang in the performance(s) in these recordings. Verdi's Disco gives Leslie Fyson (normally a baritone or bass) as singing this role (http://verdisdisco.de - hyperlink in CLORLINK.HTM). As far as I can ascertain none of the performances was broadcast, so the recording would presumably have been made «in house». The performance on 1 May 1974 is reviewed in OPERA July 1974 pp.639-640

This recording is reviewed in the following publications:-

Opera News - February 3 1996 p.46

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:- *Recording of a performance by the Dallas Civic Opera (30 November or 8 December 1962; see OPERA February 1963 pp.97-98). According to OPÉRA INTERNATIONAL (loc.cit) the recording on the CDs issued on the Cin-Cin label is of a performance at the Vienna State Opera, but according to the chronology in «Mario Del Monaco - Monumentum aere perennius» Del Monaco never sang Otello in Vienna. The only performances with the partial cast quoted (Del Monaco, Vinay, Ligabue) are those in Dallas.
