Today a footnote in a history full, mostly, of Italian, German and French names, there were Latin American composers considered mega-stars in the opera houses of the 19th century. Mexican composer Melesio Morales reached the height of his fame with his masterful opera Ildegonda. We will delve into this opera with a historical recording featuring Violeta Davalos, Raul Hernandez, and the Carlos Chavez Symphony Orchestra under Fernando Lozano.
