This special collection highlights Price’s storied career with the company, from her performance in Verdi’s Il Trovatore recorded just days after her debut, to the 1966 world premiere of Barber’s Antony and Cleopatra—which inaugurated the new Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center—to her 1985 farewell in the title role of Verdi’s Aida. Offering just a sampling of Price’s unsurpassed artistry, this compilation also features selections from her extraordinary appearances in Puccini’s Tosca, Verdi’s La Forza del Destino and Ernani, Mozart’s Don Giovanni, and more.
