Beginning of the prelude is missing. The microphone was placed behind the curtain and until the curtain opened, there was only muffled sound of the orchestra.
Remarks
In-house recording privately made by the lighting engineer from the lighting bridge above the stage for John Lanigan
A production by Hans Hotter (1964)
This recording preserves Hans Hotter’s very last Covent Garden appearance.
