The young artist roster of 1973 included 44 singers, quite a few of whom went on to craft careers in the performing arts. In addition to those mentioned in the individual posts dedicated to 1973 season productions (Most Happy Fella, Saint of Bleecker Street, and Don Pasquale), opera lovers will doubtless be familiar with John Aler, Judith Christin, Sigmund Cowan, Martha Randall, and Linda Roark-Strummer. (See full roster below.)
Other 1973 performances included a concert performance of Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman with the National Symphony Orchestra (!), a concert with the Wolf Trap Orchestra featuring excerpts from Idomeneo and Figaro, and a gala finale concert of scenes from a wide range of repertoire (click on images to enlarge programs).
