Minnesbok, San Francisco Opera, Opera Guild
Jussi Bjorling's long-standing connections with the San Francisco Opera have left us with wonderful and unforgettable memories. He sang many of his most famous roles here-in Li Trovatore, Manon Lescaut, La Boheme, Tosca. Rigoletto and Romeo et Juliette. At one of these performances his wife appeared as Juliette, and on one occasion she sang with him the duet "Sweethearts'' for the annual Fol de Roi, an event which the Opera Guild organizes to support the work of the opera company and which is attended by thousands of people. Mr. Bjorling always hoped that he would have the opportunity to sing Radames at the San Francisco Opera. Unfortunately, it could never be arranged, and now it is, for all time, too late.
