The Montreal Gazette February 2, 1938
This is about a Chicago Traviata in late April 1949. Claudia Cassidy, herself an operatic tyrant in Chicago, claims there should be no booing in the states as in Europe. See where it since lead the Met to, anybody can sing there, and its audience is one of the dumbest.
It would not seem that Palermo recorded.
I wish to thank Daniele Godor for the Traviata reviews.
