Le Nozze di Figaro, Montevideo 1936

Teatro Solis in Montevideo

About 30 minutes of this performance exists. The opera was being staged at the Teatro Colon in Buenos Aries in August 1936 (performances on Aug 7, 9, 20 & 23). In the middle of the run the entire cast and orchestra moved across the River Plate to Montevideo in neighbouring Uruguay for one performance, which was partly recorded.
It gives us a rare chance to hear Tiana Lemnitz live on stage. The German soprano was Pamina in Beecham's complete recording of the Magic Flute and captured as Octavian in Rosenkavalier in Buenos Aires (also in 1936).
