From the studio of Sedge LeBlang. Ca. 253 x 203 mm. Thebom, an American mezzo-soprano of Swedish parentage, "made her first appearance with the Metropolitan on tour in Philadelphia as Brangäne in 1944 and her New York début with the company as Fricka in Die Walküre in the same year; she remained with the Metropolitan until the 1966-7 season, singing much Wagner and a variety of other leading roles. In 1950 she sang Dorabella at Glyndebourne, and in 1957 she had considerable success at Covent Garden as Dido in the first English professional staged performance of Les Troyens. In 1967-8 she was artistic director of the Atlanta Opera Company. Thebom had a wide-ranging mezzo-soprano of generally fine quality, not a great voice, but one capable of most pleasing effect, confirmed by souvenirs of her Dorabella, Eboli and Brangäne on disc." Max de Schauensee and Alan Blyth in Grove Music Online. Bookseller Inventory #
