      PERFORMANCE (1880)
      DENVER: Denver Opera House: Planquette: The Chimes of Normandy, and

      DÉBUT
      LONDON: CG. farewell performance: Nellie Melba (s) (1861-1931)
      Aussie. and John Brownlee (b) (1900-1969) Aussie. Made his CG début.
      1926.
      NOTE: Melba hated every record she made, until she heard an HMV
      electrical transcription of her Covent Garden farewell performance
      recorded in 1926. At sixty-six she could say. "After all these years,
      I hear my voice played back to me as I knew it to be--but too late,
      too late!"

      PREMIER
      BRITTEN: "Gloriana" CG (1953); w/Edith Coats (m/s) (1908-1983) Eng.
      Jennifer Vyvyan (s) (1925-1974) Eng. Peter Pears (t) (1910-1986) Eng.
      [Essex]; (Pritchard, conducting). The performance took place in the
      disgruntled presence of Queen Elizabeth II, who was not amused by a
      stage presentation of her predecessor's, Elizabeth and Essex; amorous
      daily lives.

      TODAY'S QUESTION

      b. Der Frischütz.
      c. Der Friedenstag.
      d. Fair at Sorochinsk.
      e. None of the above.
