And don’t forget that during the same season the Met also presented “Boheme” in the original Italian. I believe the English version utilized mostly English speaking singers while the Italian version had mostly Italian speakers.

Back in those days, as a teenager, I thought that translation into English was a good idea. I became older and wiser rather quickly!
