Extracted from a 1963 television broadcast of Verdi's SIMON BOCCANEGRA, here is the ensemble from Act II "Plebe! Patrizi! Popolo!" - sung in English by the dynamic John Shaw as Simon and Nance Grant as his daughter Maria/Amelia. Because of contracts to perform elsewhere during the filming, Nance Grant only appears on the soundtrack! John Shaw performed the title role many times in his long career. This television performance was the only time Nance Grant sang this role.
