Notes and Editorial Reviews

A major discovery! A dramtically powerful 1960 television production of Menotti's most provocative work. Patricia Neway, the famed creator of the role of Madga Sorel in the Broadway run of this opera, brings the character to life her with astonishing realism. The superlative supporting cast includes baritone Chester Ludgin. A major discovery! A dramtically powerful 1960 television production of Menotti's most provocative work.
