[POINT / CLICK MENU TOP LEFT to Navigate Website]

December 14 -- On this day in 1990 opera lovers turned into couch potatoes. For four evenings, starting on this day, they watched and listened to an unabridged telecast of Richard Wagner's marathon-length The Ring. 21 -- On this day in 1921 fourteen pianists assembled on the stage of Carnegie Hall for a benefit concert. When conductor Walter Damrosch walked on stage he exclaimed, "You people don't need a conductor. You need a traffic cop." 24 -- "Amahl and the Night Visitors," the first opera composed for television, made its debut on this day in 1951. Twelve-year-old Chet Allen sang the leading part. ###
