Robert B. Ardis


Metropolitan Opera, tenor, Jussi Bjorling, Carnegie Hall


If memory serves, I was privileged to see and hear Jussi Björling in person five times at the old Met: once in Manon Lescaut, twice in Tosca, once in Faust, and one last time in Cavalleria rusticana. I also saw and heard him twice in recital at Carnegie Hall and several times in recital at the Hunter College Auditorium. I think there was also an appearance at a Swedish Seaman’s benefit at Carnegie Hall.
