Sárdy sang a great deal more in operetta than in opera, and was also a successful film actor. This selection of Die Meistersinger is from one of only two opera recordings of his voice. His most important opera roles were David, Tamino and Almaviva.
I wish to thank Ildikó Vegh for the recordings (Die Bayadere, Friederike).
I wish to thank Robert Schlesinger for the recording (Meistersinger), pictures and notes.
