Verdi Revival In the Weimar Republic

From the period 1919-1928 in Germany, there was an enormous revival of Verdi operas, and here are some selections:

1.Forza del Destino        with Meta Seinemer* and Ivar Andresen.

2.Vespri Siciliani             with Heinrich Schlusnus and Helge Roswaenge.

3. Simone Boccanegra  with Alexander Kipnis and Schlusnus

4. Don Carlo                     with Wilhelm Strienz and Seinemeyer*

5. Macbeth                       with Andresen.

   * Sadly,Meta Seinemeyer, one of the great sopranos, passed away at age 33. She would have been even a greater artist, but her career was tragically cut short by Leukemia.
