Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter

This video is the second of a two-part series featuring performances by some of the greatest stars of opera in the 20th century. Many operatic moments are recorded on these vintage productions, which broadcast on the Bell Telephone Hour Telecasts from late 1959 to early 1967. The mass television audience was introduced to a milieu of musical society that might otherwise have been unavailable. Presented in this volume are thrilling performances by Eileen Farrell, George London, Robert Merrill, and Franco Corelli.
