Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
Following its radio debut in 1928, The Voice of Firestone aired on television between 1949 and 1963. Some of the world's most promising newcomers and established stars sang classical songs and current hits while Howard Barlow and his 46-piece orchestra accompanied them. Many of these telecasts are now available as part of this In Opera and Song series. This volume features soprano Anna Moffo singing arias from Madama Butterfly, La Boheme, and Faust. Moffo made her Metropolitan Opera debut in 1959 in Verdi's La Traviata. These video clips originally aired between 1958 and 1963.
