    Unfortunately, for some unbeknownst reason, I cannot manage a larger, easier to read image. This is a scan of my signed program of the same Vienna State Opera/Otto Schenk production of Fidelio that I supered in, dated October 31, 1979.

    Inscribed to me and signed by:

    Leonard Bernstein
    Gwyneth Jones (Leonore)
    Jess Thomas (Florestan)
    Theo Adam (Don Pizarro)
    Lucia Popp (Marzelline)
    Kurt Rydl (Rocco)
    Horst Laubenthal (Jacquino)

    Hans Helm sang Don Fernando, but somehow I missed getting his signature. I was so shy and intimidated by the prospect of bothering Lucia Popp (my favorite Queen of the Night) that I had to wait and ask her to sign my program maybe 15 years later when she was in town to sign CDs. She was very amused and a little hurt that I found her intimidating - and, she was a very sweet lady.

    That is awesome!
    There are no long Wagner operas. Only short attention spans.

    Wow, this is a strange Tosca. She needs to shed a few (70 maybe ) pounds. But man does she put the thrust on that knife (queued up to just before the knife thrust).
    https://youtu.be/Y8bndF66tzo?t=4975
    Watch about 20 seconds after she stabs him she gives him another stab for good measure!

    Whole video (and English subs too):


    Also instead of jumping off the parapet wall, she jumps out a window, and carefully crosses herself first.

    Nice! A traditonal Barber of Seville featuring Joyce Didonato! I wish they had released this on DVD with English subs.

    I don't care for that ending, but don't mess with Lilla Lee. That lady gave Scarpia a vicious knife thrust.
