in This year the general policy of
a- the Detroit Opera company has
n, been in the hands of Jefferson B.
ge Webb of the Symphony orchestra,
d and Thaddeus Wronski. Mr. Wron-
ski believes that featuring stars is
rather a modern idea, most detri-
t mental to the morale of the asso-
e ciate artists in the cast, and in the
id long run damaging to the cause of
of opera itself. Hence, Detroit has
se adhered to the old-fashioned way:
v- well balanced performances, no
ut1 huge deficits anticipated, co-ordi-
nated efforts with the sole aim to
or preserve opera for future genera-
U. tions.
