Orlando Furioso: Vivaldi: San Francisco Opera 1990

Antonio Vivaldi's opera is set on the enchanted island of the sorceress Alcina. Although old and ugly, Alcina can make herself appear beautiful to bewitch courtiers who set foot in her realm. When fate brings Angelica; her lover, Medoro; and the jealous Orlando to the island, Alcina finds herself challenged. American mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne heads a stellar cast in this San Francisco Opera production.

L'Africaine 1988

This was a 1988 revival of a 1971 production that teamed Domingo (Vasco da Gama) and Verrett (Selika - both then very much in their prime) in Meyerbeer's discursive swan-song. Seventeen years on, they are more statuesque than sexy, but both give larger-than-life performances that contain moments of completely thrilling vocalism. The casting is very strong, with the exception of Justino Diaz's Nelusko, which has strong presence but not much vocal allure. As Inez, Vasco da Gama's fiancee and rival for Shirley Verrett, Ruth Ann Swneson sings with great beauty and has impressive stage presence, very much holding her own in the confrontation with Verrett in the last act. Domingo is refulgent of tone and dramatically convincing, and he and Verrett strike sparks. She really comes into her own in one of the most preposterous mad-scenes in all opera, where she is slowly poisoned by the scent of a giant tree, contriving to make this dramatically truthful and even moving.

The first telecast, La Bohème, featured Luciano Pavarotti as Rodolfo and Renata Scotto as Mimi, with James Levine conducting; all three were interviewed during the intermission. Some of the celebrated opera singers featured on Live from the Met have included Plácido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti, Beverly Sills, Samuel Ramey, Renée Fleming, Joan Sutherland, Marilyn Horne, Renata Scotto, Leontyne Price, and Sherrill Milnes. During its live broadcasts, the program featured lengthy interviews and features on opera topics during the intermissions. These segments were often up to a half-hour in length themselves.

Hosts of the program included Tony Randall, Beverly Sills, Speight Jenkins, Alexander Scourby, and Garrick Utley. The announcer was Peter Allen.
