Please do NOT order this tape! With most databases you will find the cast mentioned here, which is the right one, BUT what you will get is the tape shown to the left from Belcanto with Alfredo Kraus. So unless you want a performance with Kraus, just don't buy it!
There used to be a LaserDisc in the early 80s directly from Grand Opera Paris, but that seems to be gone and there is no current knowledge of a DVD or VHS-release at present. If we can come up with any news there, we will update the archives at this point.
