Halévy's gripping opera had not been heard at the Met for almost 70 years when it was revived for tenor Neil Shicoff a month before this broadcast. His searing account of Eléazar, a Jewish goldsmith burdened by a terrible secret quickly became a modern operatic classic. Soile Isokoski is his beloved daughter Rachel, in love with a man who turns out not to be Samuel, a simple workman in her father's shop, but Prince Léopold (Eric Cutler). Rachel is sent to her gruesome death by Cardinal de Brogni (Ferruccio Furlanetto), who discovers Eléazar's secret too late

The toughest show on earth : my rise and reign at the Metropolitan Opera by Joseph Volpe ( Book )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An anecdote-filled behind-the-scenes look at more than forty years of the highlights, successes, and day-to-day inner workings--productions, divas, and backstage dramas--of New York's Metropolitan Opera House, by Joseph Volpe, the only general manager to have risen through the ranks. This book is the story of Volpe's years leading up to the Met, from his first big job as a stagehand at the Morosco Theater to the odd jobs he picked up moonlighting. It is his Met years--from apprentice carpenter to general manager--that tell about New York and the business of culture. Volpe looks at the Met today, an institution of vast egos and complicated politics, as well as its glittering past. He writes about the general managers he worked under; his own embattled rise to the top; his bad-cop, good-cop collaboration with conductor James Levine; and making a family of highly charged artist-stars and visionary directors.--From publisher description
Toughest Show on Earth by Joseph Volpe ( )
2 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Toughest Show on Earth is the ultimate behind-the-scenes chronicle of the divas and the dramas of New York's Metropolitan Opera House, by the remarkable man who rose from apprentice carpenter to general manager. Joseph Volpe gives us an anecdote-filled tour of more than four decades at the Met, an institution full of vast egos and complicated politics. With stunning candor, he writes about the general managers he worked under, his embattled rise to the top, the maneuverings of the blue-chip board, and his masterful approach to making a family of such artist-stars as Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo, Teresa Stratas, and Renee Fleming, and such visionary directors as Franco Zeffirelli, Robert Wilson, and Julie Taymor. Intimate and frank, The Toughest Show on Earth is not only essential for music lovers, but for anyone who wants to understand the inner workings of the culture business.

L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti ( Recording )
2 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in Italian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This performance showcases Luciano Pavarotti at his magnificent best. The role of good hearted Nemorino might have been written just for him. Hopelessly in love with wealthy Adina (Kathleen Battle), Nemorino watches, helpless, as flashy Sergeant Belcore (Gino Quilico) seems to win her heart. Enter Dr. Dulcamara (Paul Plishka). He's a quack, but Nemorino believes that the love potion Dulcamara is peddling will help him win Adina's love. It's only a bottle of plain old Bordeaux, but never underestimate the power of true love -- or of Luciano Pavarotti's seductive tenor
