    St Laurent has released the aircheck of the 4 Apr 1970 performance. Wondering whether it's the same as the Nuova Era release. The St Laurent is available from Norbeck, Peters & Ford:

    I had bought from them once. What they produce are actually custom-made CD-Rs.

    I framed a very special poster of the very first time Enrico Caruso ever sang at the Met -- in Rigoletto. The poster gives the names of the entire cast and a small picture of Caruso. It is a prized possession of mine.

    Callas was asked to deputise for Tebaldi again a few months later, but refused, stating that she would only sing at La Scala again as a full member of the company. The next time she appeared there, she opened the 1951/1952 season as Elena in a new production of I Vespri Siciliani and from then on she was known as La Regina della Scala.
