Jose van Dam
Orchestra and Chorus of the Vienna State Opera
ConductorHerbert von Karajan
This 1978 performance is steeped in scandal. Franco Bonisolli was originally cast in the lead role but abandoned the cast during a rehearsal where the public had been admitted entry, and, after throwing his sword at the conductor, left the stage in fury, to be later replaced by Plácido Domingo.
What this performance makes so special: Karajan not only conducted the opera, but he was also responsible for the stage direction.
