During the course of her spectacular career, mezzo-soprano Rise Stevens set new standards of vocal and dramatic excellence for American singers. Her debut with the Metropolitan Opera took place in 1938, in the role of Octavian in Strauss' "Der Rosenkavalier," marking the start of an enduring relationship with that company which extended well past Miss Stevens' career as a singer. This second volume devoted to Rise Stevens' appearances on the "Voice of Firestone" series is highlighted by three selections from Saint-Saens' "Samson et Dalila," which, next to "Carmen," is perhaps the opera most associated with Miss Stevens. In these, and the other songs and arias presented on this program, Miss Stevens demonstrates the vocal refinement and interpretive mastery which set her apart as one of this country's most accalimed opera singers.
