Donizetti: Don Pasquale (in German)
BR live video rec. at Prinzregententheater Munich, 1961-02-06.
- Cast: Fritz Wunderlich (Ernesto), Kurt Böhme (Don Pasquale), Erika Köth (Norina), Raimund Grumbach (Malatesta), Chor der Bayerischen Staatsoper, Bayerisches Staatsorchester, cond. Alberto Erede
- Süddeutsche Zeitung, 1961-02-08: "He was a fresh Ernesto, by no means renunciatively minded from the start, whose sentiment of cheerfully approved convention of the amoroso in the opera buffo did not spring from despondency of the heart."
Unfortunately, Fritz Wunderlich is not featured at all in the surviving videotaped excerpts of that performance.
Thanks to Claudius Adam for the information!
