I oppose merging the article on Mefistofle and Boito. Other operas have independent articles (c.f. La Boheme, Maria Stuarda). I've deleted the merge suggestion. --FourthAve 00:46, 18 July 2005 (UTC)

Thanks; you're right. Let's keep the two types of articles separate. Antandrus (talk) 01:41, 18 July 2005 (UTC)

Sydney Opera Company 1974[edit]

In 1974 the Sydney Opera Company gave Australia's premiere performance of Mefistofele with Vadim Laptev as Mefistofele. The performance was recorded on LP by Festival Records. I suspect there would only be approximately 100 of these recordings.

I was in the chorus of 90 members during dress rehearsal in the Sydney Opera House when, dressed in costume, I heard a sound in the corridor behind a stage door. I opened the door to find Leonard Bernstein on the other side, listening to our performance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:56, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
