This performance features the legendary African-American contralto Marian Anderson in her history-making Met debut role of Ulrica, the fortune-teller. At first her predictions are all good news. But who would believe the best friend of the king would actually murder him? Absurd. That's what the king (Jan Peerce) thinks. But he loves Amelia (Zinka Milanov), the wife of his friend Renato (Robert Merrill). And when Renato discovers them together, he joins the plot against the king. This is Verdian passion at its best

More than 15 years after first thrilling Met audiences with his portrayal of the fiery revolutionary Gabriele Adorno, Plácido Domingo--in an unprecedented artistic tour-de-force--returned to Verdi's masterpiece, taking on the baritone title role. It's one of the composer's richest characters, demanding extraordinary emotional intensity. Audiences hailed Domingo's performance as one of the most searing and memorable in his storied career. James Levine conducts a brilliant cast that also includes Adrianne Pieczonka as Amelia, Marcello Giordani as Gabriele Adorno, and James Morris as Fiesco
La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( Recording )

45 editions published between 1957 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice
