2 'Leonoras/ One Behind Scenes, Save
II Trovatore in Fine Performance
By Alice tversmon
Cinema technique saved the
San Carlo Opera* performance of
Verdi's "II Trovatore" last night
at the Watergate. It created per
haps the first occasion when two
sopranos appeared in the same
part, the one acting and appar
! ently singing on the stage, the
other providing the real voice and
; singing tTie arias and ensembles
off stage. These two courageous
sopranoes were Gertrude Ribla
and Leona Scheunemann. It hap
pened like this:
Miss Ribla was scheduled to
sing the leading role of Leonora
as her second performance with
the company, having sung the
title role of what was given of
"Aida” on Tuesday. That was the
night of the sudden, furious storm
and Miss Ribla shared the
drenched condition her audience
suffered. No bad effects developed
until yesterday and by perform
ance time she could hardly utter
a sound.
Frantic Search Made.
A frantic search for a last min
ute substitute was made, but only
two sopranos ready for the part
were discovered. One had sung it
only in German and the other
was Miss Scheunemann whose
Micaela in Monday's "Carmen.”
made a strong impression. Com
plications arose when it became
known that Miss Scheunemann
well versed in the Italian ver
sion, had never acted the role
It was finally decided that Miss
Ribla would attempt to sing, and
the first scene was completed
with some of the Leonora music
cut out. It was then announced
that the opera would go on with
the ghost singing of Miss Sche
unemann in the wings and the
action supplied by Miss Ribla or
the stage.
So w'ell did this work out that
we will be harboring a suspicion
hereafter even when listening tc
the Metropolitan. It would re
quire, however, artists skilled both
in music and in the theater to put
it across. Miss Ribla gave a
splendid performance of the role
Her mouth formed the words and
her acting emphasized every in
flection. Beautiful costumes and
a regal stage bearing completed
the picture and needed only Mis.<
Ribla s luscious voice to make the
hole memorable.
j If possessing not quite so large
a voice as the silent songstress
Miss Scheunemann has much ol
the same fine quality. .She sang
the music beautifully and the co
ordination between the two artiste
was perfect. Through the finish
of Miss Scheunemann‘s singing,
the full emotional impact of the
music reached the audience in a
remarkable way. In poised vocal
ism, clear diction, warmth of tone
!and polished phrasing,, it was an
exhibition of artistry seldom
equalled. And not a flaw entered
into the tricky ensembles.
Singing Exceptional.
Alessandro Granda as Manrico
and Anton Marco as Count di
Luna rivaled each other. Both did
some exceptional, singing and
made the contrasting characters
notable by their acting. Mary
Kreste was the Azucena, disclos

I mg a voice of great beauty and
power. Her conception of the part,
however, was not dramatic
enough and her youthful appear
ance, together w'ith the young
quality of her voice, did not create

lesser roles were taken by Lauren*

Much credit goes to Nicholas

anything untoward had happened,
had no announcement been made.
It was one of the cleverest solu

President Truman’s EMERGENCY BOARD recommends a 40-hour week and a pay

Railroads’ answer to Board
i: . ■
\ , •>
Union leader. ... oard is
In face of Board findings to the contrary, union
leaders insist on 48 hours pay for 40 hours work.
This would be an average increase of 31 cents an hour,
or $2.48 a day. So Union leaders have called a com
pletely unjustified strike on 5 Western railroads, effec
tive June 25.
On June 15, an Emergency Board appointed
by President Truman under the terms of the
Railway Labor Act recommended the railroads
grant switchmen a 40-hour week and a wage
increase of 18 cents an hour, or $1.44 for an
8-hour day.
* Despite the added financial burden involved,
the railroads are ready, to accept these recom
mendations, as they have always accepted Emer
gencv Board recommendations on national issues.
But the leaders of the Switchmen's Union re
fuse to accept! They demand an average increase
of 31 CENTS AN HOUR OR $2.48 A DAY—al
though their present earnings are substantially
higher than those of workers in other industries!
Board Say* Demands Unjustified
In its report, the Board declared this demand
unjustified by all the evidence presented. It also
pointed out that it would give the switchmen an
unfair pay advantage over other groups of rail
road employes, and would add too great a burden
to railroad costs.
Here is another case of a railroad union flout
ing the findings of an Emergency Board—another
case of calling a crippling strike in an outrageous
and reckless attempt to force demands which the
Board clearly labels as unjustified 1
