Even for the always curious world of opera, the career of Siegfried Jerusalem is an anomaly. Possibly the leading Heldentenor today, he didn't begin serious voice training until he was 31. He was 37 before he finally forsook the security of the second bassoon post with Sergiu Celibidache and the Stuttgart Radio Orchestra for the uncertainties of the stage.

Flotow's 1847 comedy about life among England's pampered rich receives a performance that infuses new blood into its faded charms. The cast and Wallberg strike an appealing balance between theatrical vivacity and stylistic refinement. In 1977, when the recording sessions were held, the microphones caught Popp and Jerusalem in pristine estate. Her delectable Lady Harriet and his Mickleford abound in sweetness and finesse. The digital remastering gives no cause for complaint.

The Metropolitan Opera's new production of the four operas in Richard Wagner's "Der Ring des Nibelungen" will be televised on four consecutive evenings in June, 1990, by Public Broadcasting Service. "Das Rheingold" will be broadcast June 18, followed by "Die Walkure," "Siegfried" and "Gotterdammerung," the Met announced Thursday. The composer wanted the operas to be seen in four straight nights so that impact could build over the 17 hours.

If, as a wise person once said, every song recital is another chapter in the singer's autobiography, then Siegfried Jerusalem's life, as represented in the German tenor's recital at the Old Globe Theatre in Balboa Park Monday night, must be one of appalling equanimity. Not to say a boring one--if we have not walked in someone else's Ballys, we should not make such judgments--but at least uneventful.

Here we go again. The wonders of a great opera are compromised by the gimmickry of a meddlesome director and designer. The problem becomes especially irksome when the music is sensitively conducted, exquisitely sung and elegantly played. Take, for sad example, Mozart's "Idomeneo" as staged by Frank Corsaro, illustrated by Maurice Sendak and conducted by Roderick Brydon for the Music Center Opera on Tuesday.

Campbell announced Tuesday.
