Synopsis

Album Description
This live broadcast from Vienna in 1971 brings together one of the most outstanding casts ever assembled for this rarely heard opera, a situation due in great part to the lack of singers able today to satisfy Meyerbeer?s sometimes almost superhuman demands on the human voice. When Les Huguenots was popular at The Met, in the late nineteenth century, performances were known as "nights of seven stars" because no fewer than seven superstar vocalists were required to put the opera across. This performance follows the original five-act sequence, though with numerous cuts.
