Synopsis

Great Stars of Opera, Vol. 2: Telecasts from the Bell Telephone Hour, 1959-1966
This video is the second of a two-part series featuring performances by some of the greatest stars of opera in the 20th century. Many operatic moments are recorded on these vintage productions, which broadcast on the Bell Telephone Hour Telecasts from late 1959 to early 1967. The mass television audience was introduced to a milieu of musical society that might otherwise have been unavailable. Presented in this volume are thrilling performances by Eileen Farrell, George London, Robert Merrill, and Franco Corelli. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi

Great Stars of Opera, Vol. 1: Telecasts from the Bell Telephone Hour, 1959-1964
This documentary is part one of a series featuring some of the greatest stars of opera, whose performances were captured on the Bell Telephone Hour Telecasts. These programs actually began on radio in the 1940s and then came to television in 1959; the last broadcast was in 1967. The telecasts represent one of the few programs on which commercial television gave a forum for classical music. Some of the operatic artists introduced to the television public and presented here are Anna Moffo, Joan Sutherland, Birgit Nilsson, Rise Stevens, and Richard Tucker, all of whom give unforgettable performances. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
