Comments:- Recording of a performance in Fort Worth (30 November 1962). «An important production for me was a «Lucia di Lammermoor» in Fort Worth, Texas in which I sang Edgardo for the first time, opposite Lily Pons, who, at the age of fifty-eight, was singing her very last Lucia - a role that she had sung opposite Beniamino Gigli. She was a sweet, adorable person to work with, and I am glad that a pirate recording of that performance exists.» Plácido Domingo in «My First Forty Years» p.25.

Comments:- The recording on the CDRs issued by Premiere appears to be of a performance given by the New York City Opera in Philadelphia on 14 December 1965 (click link below). There was a new production at the City Opera (borrowed from Cincinnati Summer Opera) on 14 October 1965 with repeats on 30 October and 6 November, but Plácido Domingo did not appear in any of these performances. In fact, he only sang Hoffmann once at the City Opera, on 9 November 1966, but neither Sills, nor Treigle sang on that occasion («The New York City Opera» by Martin L. Sokol pp.344-353). The CDRs issued by Celestial Audio are listed on their website under «What's New ? New Year 2008» (hyperlink in CLORLINK.HTM).

According to the Performance List in this book Plácido Domingo has only sung in this opera in these two performances in Boston (6, 10 April 1966), and so the statement in the review in OPÉRA INTERNATIONAL (probably taken from the HRE LPs) that the recording is of a performance at the New York City Opera is incorrect

According to the review in OPERA June 1976 p.565 on the opening night (8 January) «Aldo Protti was ill and Tonio was sung by Mario D'Anna with complete conviction, but the Prologue was sung by Domingo! He delivered a really memorable performance of it - in a baritonal tessitura, of course, - and immediately began singing the role of Canio without any apparent effort»

Miguel Angel Zapater was in the cast announced in ÓPERA ACTUAL No.15 marzo-mayo 1995 p.70 but I have not been able to confirm that he did sing in the performance on the CDs issued by House of Opera. These are included in the list of new releases added to their website in December 2003 «03/12/22» where the date of the performance recorded is given as 31 May 1995. However, in the announcement in ÓPERA ACTUAL the dates of the performances are given as «23, 26 y 29 de Mayo, 1 y 4 de Junio» and according to OPERA (December 1995 p.1458) Plácido Domingo only sang on 26 and 29 May. Walter Fraccaro sang in some performances, presumably Raffaelle, as according to an article in El Mundo dated 23 May 1995, Plácido Domingo was replaced by Antonio Ordoñez as Stiffelio when he withdrew. I am very grateful to Mr. Stuart Williams for drawing my attention to this article.
