Karl Bohm's only studio version of the work was recorded in 1958. When Deutsche Grammophon originally planned to record the work, there were already two rival versions on the market: the Decca recording under Erich Kleiber and EMI's version under Herbert von Karajan. Karajan's recording was made in December 1956 and should have included Irmgard Seefried as Octavian and Rita Streich as Sophie, but in both cases cast changes became necessary: Seefried was replaced by the young Christa Ludwig, and pregnancy forced Rita Streich to withdraw. As a result, Deutsche Grammophon was able to use both these singers for its own recording exactly two years later. It boasts a wonderful cast, with the full-throated Marianne Schech as the Marschallin, Irmgard Seefried bringing a range of colour to the 'trouser' role of Octavian, Rita Streich light and exquisite as Sophie, and a rounded, lyrical portrait of Faninal from Fischer-Dieskau. The recording also reunited Bohm with his 'old' orchestra, the Dresden Staatskapelle, an orchestra often referred to as the Zauberharfe or Magic Harp for the fluent and airborne quality of its sound

(Scene: A shore on the island of Ceylon in antiquity) In anticipation of the fishing season, the villagers elect Zurga as their king and prepare their annual vigil to ensure safe seas. Zurga welcomes Nadir, his long-time friend, whom he has not seen since their love for the same woman divided them. They promise eternal friendship and vow never again to allow a woman to come between them. Within moments, a woman arrives, veiled. She will stand through the night, alone on the shore, in ritual prayer. Zurga promises her a priceless pearl if she is chaste in her duty and death if she violates her purity. Nadir recognizes her voice. It is Léïla, the woman he and Zurga loved in the past, and his feelings for her are rekindled . .
