    • The Voice of Firestone celebrates it's thirtieth anniversary with a gala opera evening filled with some of the Metropolitan's best singers to hail the event.

    • Soprano Anna Moffo was to appear but due to laryngitis, lyric soprano Dorothy Warenskjold filled in for her at the last minute.

    • The program marks The Voice of Firestone bow for Rosalind Elias, who made her Metropolitan Opera debut four years ago. She thus achieves a girlhood dream of one day appearing on the program that so often featured her idol, Mezzo-soprano Rise Stevens.
