On my first trip to Europe, in 1962, I attended a performance of Hoffmann at the Opera Comique. I remember Mallabrera as Hoffmann with Jean Borthayre as the villains and Christiane Eda-Pierre as Olympia. Some time later the tenor sang Nathanael in that opera in a recording with Gedda, assorted baritones/basses as the villains and assorted sopranos as Olympia, Antonia and Giulietta.

He can be heard in songs & arias on Youtube: <>

You can also listen to tenor Jose Carreras in a famous Catalan song live in the early eighties displaying amazing head voice and falsetto; things he never attempted in his operatic recordings, the song is a marvel too.
