HD-Vinyl 24/96 (RCA) Samuel Barber – Vanessa (Steber, Elias, Tozzi, Gedda, Resnik)

A great “THANK YOU” to Bob for this rarity

Vanessa is an American opera in three (originally four) acts by Samuel Barber, opus 32, with an original English libretto by Gian-Carlo Menotti. It was composed in 1956–1957 and was first performed at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City on January 15, 1958 under the baton of Dimitri Mitropoulos in a production designed by Cecil Beaton and directed by Menotti. Barber revised the opera in 1964, reducing the four acts to the three-act version most commonly performed today.
