Carmen and my birthday

On Jan.21, 1956, my 20th birthday, this Carmen w.Rise Stevens,Giuseppe Di Stefano,Robert Merrill,Lucine Amara cond.by Max Rudolf was to precede a surprise birthday party for me on the next day. However (listen to end of act 3),you hear Rise say "put my arm down,"(1:46:24) which dear Pippo broke, and the Rise Stevens music club meeting,scheduled for the next day...to get me out of the house while my friends assembled,was cancelled! PANIC!!!!

  My ma convinced me to go see Rise when she came from the hospital, and happily I was able to arrive home and shockingly had the biggest surprise imaginable!

  I was so surprised, but there was one person who was too busy to show up..her name was Renata Tebaldi! I would have fainted!

  Well,despite Pippo, it turned out well, but it was a close call.
