Doe, Mario, Pinza Make
First Appearance Before
Ann Arbor Audience
"Radio and motion-picture pro-
ductions are assisting opera in mak-
ing it more popular," Miss Doris Doe
said immediately before her perfor-
mance last night at Hill Auditorium.
"It is a process of one thing helping
another," she stated. "The moving
picture is bringing opera before the
public and arousing a new interest in
Miss Queena Mario, soprano of
the quartet, agreed with Miss Doe.
She also feels that popular interest is
being aroused by the more frequent
presentation of operatic works on the
In direct contrast to these views is
that of Ezio Pinza. Mr. Pinza stated,
"Radio and the motion picture are
doing opera no good. The public is
turning from the concert stage to the
lighter forms of amusement where a
similar aesthetic effect is created."
First Appearance Here
No one of the three stars has ever
sung in Ann' Arbor previously, but
all have appeared before student
audiences in some part of the country.
Miss Doe believes such groups are the
most enthusiastic of all and the most
receptive. Miss Mario described stu-
dent audiences as "eager" and said
she prefered them to all others.
Miss Mario would rather appear in
opera than in any other type of per-
formance. "I like the dramatic ele-
ment and the costumes," she stated.
"They add so much to the general
effect. However, I do enjoy any type
of musical performance."
Mr. Pinza stated, "Whenever I am
in good voice and I feel that the audi-
ence is enjoying my performance, I
like to sing. I have no particular pref-

cert stage, or opera. I enjoy them
Stars Enjoy Concert
Both Miss Doe and Miss Mario
stated they were "thrilled" by the
large group assembled at Hill Audi-
torium for the performance. Before
the concert Miss Doe confessed that
she was surprisingly excited in an-
ticipation of the quartet appearance.
All four stars agree that last night's
performance was of an unusual type,
and they seemed to enjoy the concert
as much as their audience.
