Don Carlo, radio archives, radio, Jussi Bjorling
Jussi Bjorling took on his last n ew stage role, Don Carlo, to help open the Met's first season with Rudolph Bi ng as manager. At the November 6, 1950, premiere -which was telecast- and again for the radio broadcast five days later, Bjorling was at the top of his form vocally and interpretively, steadily producing bright, vividly- colored tones in an impassioned portrayal of his character. It's another state-of-grace performance worthy to stand next to his famous 1940 and 1947 broadcasts as Romeo and his 1956 broadcast as des Grieux in Manon Lescaut.
