Comments:- Recording of a performance in the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden (April or May 1987). The CDRs issued by House of Opera are included in the list of new releases added to their website in December 2003 «03/12/22» where the date of the recording is given as 14 April 1987. However, on this day Rosalind Plowright sang Desdemona (see OPERA June 1987 pp.694-696). Julia Varady sang Desdemona on 24, 28 April and 2, 7 May 1987. The performance on 24 April 1987 is reviewed in OPERA June 1987 pp.699-700. None of these recordings was broadcast so the recording was probably made «in-house».

Comments:- Recording of a performance at Torre del Lago (1 August 1997; see OPERA Festival Issue 1997 pp.117-118). The recording on the House of Opera CD-ROM seems to have been made by a member of the audience. The sound-quality of Acts 1 and 2 is quite good, but that of Act 3 is poor. The cassettes issued by Charles Handelman are listed in his catalogue dated November 2000, where the date of the performance is given as 3 August 1997. This suggests that the recording is dfferent from that on House of Opera's CD-Rom
