She made her Festival debut in Ann Gradually
Arbor two seasons ago, a few months portance
after her debut at the Metropolitan When
Opera House. In order to come to she took]

gagements awaited her at $4,000 each. serious,a
She was born of French and Ital- mind, ss
ian parentage in the French Riviera strictness
city of Cannes. Graduating from the severe cri
Paris Conservatory as a pianist at-an
early age, it never occurred to her
or to her teachers that she had a E
voice of exceptional worth. She dis-
t by accident. Playing for
soldiers in the hospitals of
e day she included a song in
am. After that the men lis-
tiently to her playing of
ons by Bach and Debussy

y she came to realize the im-
of her singing.
she was 21 years of age
her first singing lesson from
uished Parisian maestro, who
zed to learn that she had
fore studied voice. Young,
and possessing a brilliant
he studied with military
and became her own most
tic. In three years she made
ther operatic debut in Alsace in the
role of "Lakme."
Other engagements followed
throughout the cities of France with
the exception of Paris. While singing
in the University town of Montpelier,
news of her artistic triumph was
cabled to Mr. Gatti Casazza, of the
Metropolitan Opera House, and with-
in a few weeks she was on her way
to America for an audition. She re-
mained just one week, during which
time she was engaged by that or-
ganization for opera appearances and
by the Metropolitan Musical Bureau
for such concert appearances as she
might care to make.
The following year, Jan. 3, 1931, she
made her Metropolitan House debut
singing the role of "Lucia di Lammer-
moor." It was the first time in her
life that she had appeared in a major
opera house. Instantly she was the
success of the musical season. At the
conclusion of the "Mad Scene," she
received one of the greatest ovations
ever tendered a Metropolitan prima
donna. Her future performances were
in keeping with this outstanding in-
troduction. and since then she has
been recognized the world over as the
greatest in her particular field. Nego-
tiations were at once undertaken by
the Ann Arbor May Festival author-
ities, with the result that she was
heard in the Festival of 1931.
