Massenet: Werther - Gedda, Gorr, Uppman, Elgar, Tair, Ferro; Lawrence. 1965


Listen to a Sample:


Nicolai Gedda was in his prime when he appeared with the American Opera Society in this performance of Werther and he sings like a god and that is probably all that need be said about this performance were it not for the fact that he was joined by the radiant (and sadly under recorded) Rita Gorr. Her voice is much larger than you might expect for a Charlotte but she brings nuance and style to the role.
