Met broadcasts

This page itemises the surviving broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera House in New York between 1931-2005. Some of the best singers in the world performed at the Met and their broadcasts captured many singers in their most famous roles as well as others who recorded very little commercially. Sound quality is variable and some of the early off-air recordings are very noisy, but from the 1936-7 season some have remarkably good sound, having been taken from the original NBC transcription discs (rather than from off-air). Many early broadcasts are not known to survive, and others are incomplete, but there is still a remarkable number that exist in good sound. After 1950 all the broadcasts are known to still exist and most survive in excellent sound derived from FM or transcription sources. The Met was comparatively late to broadcast in stereo (December 1973). Major holdings of Met broadcasts (aside from the Met archive itself) can be found in the Library of Congress and the New York Public Library.

 

Where you see the word 'exists' I have not heard the recording personally but have it on strong authority that it does survive. Where you see 'commentary exists' it is believed that this is the case, though it is missing from the copy I have heard. The performances are complete unless noted.

If you have any questions about any of these recordings please email me
