The last minute cancellation of Luciano Pavarotti, the originally scheduled Cavaradossi, necessitated a change in cast. Salvatore Licitra flew in from Italy and made his debut in the performance, which was greeted with a standing ovation.

The performance was projected onto a screen on the facade of the Opera House and the sound relayed to an audience of three thousand in Lincoln Center Plaza.
