Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

it was Beethoven's Fidelio that featured at the opening of the Deutsches Opernhaus in 1912 - and it was also chosen for the anniversary concert on 7th November 1962 that is documented in this DVD. For the four main roles, singers were chosen who already had international experience but were still fresh and vigorous. Christa Ludwig, James King and Walter Berry would come to be regarded by The Metropolitan Opera as ideal interpreters of the two main roles.
