Stravinsky
The Rake's Progress

This historic broadcast captures the U.S. premiere of Stravinsky’s landmark opera. Legendary conductor Fritz Reiner leads an extraordinary cast, headed by Eugene Conley as Tom Rakewell, the young man whose sudden inheritance leads to his downfall and the loss of his beloved, Anne Trulove, sung by the great Hilde Güden. Mack Harrell is Nick Shadow, Tom’s Mephistophelian mentor and guide on his journey to dissolution. Blanche Thebom sings Baba the Turk and Norman Scott is Anne’s father, Trulove.
