My Peters archive  is not enormous. Here are a few special memories. First BALLO IN MASCHERA, Oct. 1975, Act I with Nicolai Gedda as Riccardo, Peters as Oscar, then the final act, the death scene, add Teresa Kubiak as Amelia.
DON GIOVANNI, Sherill Milnes, Peters as Zerlina, "La ci darem la Mano"  Sept. 1974
DON PASQUALE, Feb. 1980, Peters as Norina
L'ELISIR D'AMORE, Act I, Peters as Adina, Sept. 1973
Finally FIDELIO, Act I Dec. 1983,  Matti Salminen as Rocco, Peters as Marcellina, Eva Marton as Leonore.
Wonderful memories.
