Cher Public

The Philadelphia Story

bev-pavWhile new programming from Trove Thursday is on temporary hiatus, La Cieca thought you, the cher public, might enjoy the return of some classic episodes of Unnatural Acts of Opera. First up, a performance of I Puritani from Philadelphia Lyric Opera on 18 January 1972. (Included among the attractions are two vignettes from the featurette “Apocryphal Opera Anecdote Theater of the Air.”)

Luciano Pavarotti (Arturo) Louis Quilico (Riccardo) Paul Plishka (Giorgia) Ellen Shade (Queen Enrichetta) Thomas Paul (Lord Walton) Beverly Sills (Elvira) Anton Guadagno, conductor.
