Ariadne auf Naxos
US premiere of the Original 1912 version (in Concert).
Beverly Sills, in the role of Zerbinetta, triumphs over the formidable challenges of perhaps the most difficult coloratura role ever written, and Claire Watson is ideal in the title role of Ariadne in this latest instalment in VAI’s series of historic telecasts from the archives of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. This legendary 1969 concert performance marked the US premiere of the original 1912 version of the opera. The orchestra is under the direction of the BSO Music Director Erich Leinsdorf, and the cast also includes Robert Nagy, John Reardon, Benita Valente, Carole Bogard, and James Billings. 93 minutes, Color, with subtitles in English, French, German, and Italian.
