Performed in Marseille on Monday, 9 November 1942 - in Nazi-occupied (really, Nazi-infested, with both Germans and French collaborators) France, as you have noted. From the sound of it, it was probably a studio radio broadcast, in concert form.

The very measured tempo of the Prelude to Act I is about the same as the tempo that Leonard Bernstein took for this same prelude in his Met recording (on Deutsche Grammaphon) in the fall of 1972.

Important Information!!!
USA Telephone (404) 200-4776 We sell only opera recordings. The recordings are sent to you in paper sleeves with no tray card or inserts, just the raw discs with printed labels. These recordings are of nonprofessional quality that are in the public domain. The quality of these old opera recordings is not very good and they are meant for collectors and educational purposes only. Most of them are 30 or 40 years old, so they might be blurry, colors faded, and not sound very good, but they might not be available elsewhere. Please note that most of our recordings do not have tracks, they have 1 long track per disc.
