More videos? Yeah, it's that kind of week. But this one is pretty fun—an Italian newsreel covering opening night of the Metropolitan Opera's 1938 production of Verdi's Otello. Backstage footage of Lawrence Tibbett (Iago), Giovanni Martinelli (Otello) and Maria Caniglia (Desdemona), along with glimpses of the thoroughly old-school costumes and staging.
The Met's 1938 Otello was recorded for broadcast.* You can hear Tibbett sing the "Brindisi" here, with Nicolas Massue as Cassio and Giovanni Paltrinieri as Roderigo. Ettore Panizza conducts.
Correction: should read "recorded from a broadcast" (see comments).
