The Bartered Bride

Smetana’s opera The Bartered Bride is performed in a Metropolitan Opera archive broadcast from 1978, with James Levine conducting soloists Teresa Stratas, Nicolai Gedda, Jon Vickers, and Martti Talvela.


Gounod’s Faust is one of the most beloved operas in the repertory, and we hear it in a vintage recording that features Nicolai Gedda, Victoria de los Angeles, and Boris Christoff.
