Faust, Jussi Bjorling
(The following report is an excellent supplement to the account of Jussi's vocal problems of December 1953 on page 246 of Jussi. The previous chapter, "Faust in Tails," dealt with Jussi's successful 1953 Metropolitan opening night in Faust - and his thoughts about the infamous new production directed by Peter Brook. After three successful performances with an all-star cast, Jussi had to drop out of the fourth performance on December 17th after the first act. JBS member Karl Hekler was there, and he offers this stirring account.)
