Notes and Editorial Reviews

A major discovery! A dramatically powerful 1960 television production of Menotti’s most provocative work. Patricia Neway, the famed creator of the role of Magda Sorel in the Broadway run of this opera, brings the character to life here with astonishing realism. The superlative supporting cast includes baritone Chester Ludgin. 125 min., B&W. DVD version has optional English, German, Italian subtitles. A major discovery!
