Abstract

Jussi Bjorling was a mainstay for the new Lyric Opera company as it willed itself into being, first in the spring of 19$4 with a brilliantly-cast Don Giovanni (Steber, Simoneau), and then consolidating its formula of attracting the greatest singers with promises of interesting repertoire(+ good salaries, if not lavish new productions). Thus Maria Callas famously opened the fall season in Norma (with Simionato), Traviata (with Simoneau and Gobbi), Lucia (with di Stefano); check the database .at lyricopera. org!
