On September 16, 1966, the new Metropolitan Opera House opened in Lincoln Center with the world premiere of Barber’s Antony and Cleopatra, with Leontyne Price and Justino Díaz in the title roles. That first season in the Met’s new home not only ushered in a new age of theatrical possibility, it also featured an embarrassment of vocal riches, with such incomparable artists as Birgit Nilsson and Franco Corelli facing off in an unforgettable Turandot; Joan Sutherland delivering a Lucia di Lammermoor mad scene for the ages; and Jon Vickers making a historic role debut. BONUS DISC: Highlights of the Met’s 1966–67 Season.

Recording of April 2017: Extraordinary Met Performances from 1966-67. Robert Levine Mar 14, 2017. The Metropolitan Opera: The Inaugural Season: Extraordinary Met Performances from 1966–67 Barber: Antony and Cleopatra (Price, Díaz, Thomas; Schippers). Britten: Peter Grimes (Vickers, Amara, Evans; Davis). Donizetti: Lucia di Lammermoor (Sutherland, Tucker, Colzani; Bonynge). Aside from the overnight sensation (after a career of more than a decade) of Beverly Sills at the New York City Opera as Cleopatra in Julius Caesar, the 1966–1967 opera "news" in New York was the Metropolitan Opera, newly opened at Lincoln Center. The 10 broadcasts included here feature some singers who still have no equals.

In September 1966, the Metropolitan Opera in New York began its first season in its new home, a purpose-built theatre with state-of-the-art stage machinery on Broadway, part of the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

The 2016-2017 season of the Metropolitan Opera was its fiftieth season at Lincoln Center, and the company marked the milestone in lavish, enthusiastic fashion with an array of celebrations and commemorations. One of the most exciting and enduring mementos of the occasion was the release of a magnificent twentytwo CD set that contains remastered recordings of ten complete operas (plus highlights from seven others) as they were broadcast during that that inaugural season at Lincoln Center. Most opera fans know at least some of the story of the troubled production of Antony and Cleopatra, the opera commissioned by the Met to open its inaugural season at Lincoln Center. The usual narrative faults director Franco Zeffirelli for concocting a bloated, overbearing production that swamped both Samuel Barber's evocative score as well as the Met's beleaguered technical staff.

The Inaugural Season: Extraordinary Met Performances From 1966-67. The Metropolitan Opera. The Met 1985 nek/Moll/Estes broadcast excels all others in its scale and grandeur. The booklet has documentation of the performance history of the opera- which involves all of the great singers and conductors since its premiere in Bayreuth. This performance features at least two of the most idiosyncratic singers in recorded history: Vickers and Rysanek. Because the sound is so clear and the conducting so grand and powerful, we get to hear each of them as if we were there in the first rows.
