Re: [ARSCLIST] Lieberman's Penelope

Every source I can pull up says it was premiered in 1954,under George Szell.

I find I have a performance of Liebermann's opera Penelope.  It includes Birgit Nilsson in th tirle role, confirmed by the German announcement which gives out about half-wayint the cast listing.   My notes say it is Rosbaud with the NDR and the performance is before 1962.

According to consulted sources, the premiere was in 1964 with Goltz, Szell, the Vienna Phil and a somewhat different cast.

Have I misdated a later performance?  Is this a preliminary version? Is the announcement a phony?  What gives?
