New York Opera's 'Traviata'

Outstanding

Gargoyle Potpourri
Occasionally Funny

By MARK R. KILLINGSWORTH
Editor
Violets still died of consumption
in the final act, but the New York
City Opera's. performance of "La
Traviata" in Hill. Aud. last night
ended on a note of triumph never-
theless.
General- Director Julius Rudel
combined an exceptionally able
orchestra (a, rare thing in opera
performances. here) -and some
glittering singing talent >to make
Verdi's venerable tale of Violetta
Velery's love for Alfredo Germont
a powerful one still.
Patricia Brooks, as Violetta, a
society coquette whose love for
Alfredo changes. her frivolous life,
was exceptionally good. From her
first arias,: "Ahl ,fors' e lui" and
"Sempre libera," to her final sad
threnody in Act IV,. Miss, Brooks
shone.
She has striking control, and .can

turn the strongest forte into a
chilling pianissimo. While at times
her tone grew flat and somewhat
nasal, her singing was highly mov-
ing and effective, and her acting
was completely convincing.
Jerry LoMonaco, as Alfredo, was
a somewhat timid and unforceful
suitor of Violetta in the first sev-
eral acts-a restraint which ham-
pered the impact of his otherwise.
well-sung arias, 'Libiamo" and "Di
Miei Bollenti Spiriti" (which,
after all, is about "impulsive
ecstasies").
As the opera progressed, how-
ever, so did LoMonaco's style, and
by the Third Act, when he con-
fronts his rival, Baron Dauphol
(William Beck), he is an entirely
believable jealous lover. One wish-
es Alfredo had as much power in
the first two acts as he displayed
in the last two.
Georgio Germont, sung by Dom-

inic Cossa, completes the trio of power of the performances of the

major characters as Alfredo's
father, who tells a sorrowful Vio-
letta she must break off her;
"scandalous" affair with Alfredo
to protect the honor of the Ger-
mont family-whose daughter is
about to be wed.
Cossa sang a masterful "Pura
siccome" to Violetta and an equal-
ly moving "Di provenza il mar" to
Alfredo, and both his singing and
acting added considerably to the
performance. He combines tech-
nical . mastery over the difficult
role of Old Germont with a style
imbued with passion and, like Miss
Brooks, he has a compelling way
with dynamics...
The minor characters - Beck,
Muriel Greenspon as Flora Ber-'
voix, Charlotte Povia as Annina,
and Oldyna Dynowska and Arthur
Faria, the two solo dancers at Act
III's Bal Masque-enhanced the

leading singers.$
