Notes and Editorial Reviews

This rarely performed Berlioz opera is heard here in a 1975 English-language production, for the adventurous Opera Company of Boston. The superlative cast is headed by Jon Vickers in the title role, with Donald Gramm, John Reardon, and Patricia Wells. Sarah Caldwell conducts. This is the first in VAI's new series of legendary performances from the Opera Company of Boston taken from the personal archives of Ms. Caldwell.
