Canadian-born bass-baritone George London(1920-1985) made a tremendous impact on the operatic world in the course of a fifteen-year career cut short by illness. His beautifully textured, dark-hued voice encomapassed a wide vocal range, from the depths of Boris Gudonov to the baritone role of Amonasro in Verdi's "Aida" (the role of his 1951 Metropolitan Opera debut). He was equally renowned in Wagner as well as Mozart, and his keen dramatic sense and strikingly handsome appearance made him an ideal Don Giovanni. On the program of April 27, 1953, Mr. London was joined by Dorothy Warenskjold, whose pure lyric tone and musical sensitivity made her a popular guest on the Firestone series. Mr. London's partner on the program of December 28, 1953 was Nadine Conner, whose distinguished operatic career was centered around the Metropolitan Opera.
