Episode 56: 1963-1964

Renata Tebaldi

The 1963-1964 season of the Metropolitan Opera was full of highlights and traumas according to Alfred Hubay. Some of those include the calming down of the standee situation, the Milanov claque against Kurt Baum, the return of Renata Tebaldi in La boheme with Sandor Konya, a post-season two week offering for the World’s Fair, Joan Sutherland’s first Met Violetta and the 50th Anniversary Gala for Giovanni Martinelli (Part 3 of 3).
