News Brief

These bits of news may be reported about the Metropolitan: Emanuel List, graduate of the Broadway cinema cathedrals and more orthodox music academies, is a creditable addition to the Wagnerian ranks of the company-he was a splendid Landgraf in “Tannhaeuser” -but why did he sing at Bayreuth last Summer?

Nino Martini, radio singer, and Lily Pons are as handsome a couple in “Rigoletto” as you can imagine.

The “Salome” which Richard Strauss composed at the turn of the century will be “revived” next Saturday evening… Lotte Lehmann, who turned down two German invitations to create Strauss’s title role in his new “Arabella” last Summer, makes her Metropolitan debut this week in “Die Walkuere.”
