GENEVIEVE WARNER, soprano
Can someone provide additional information about this MET opera singer - I've searched the internet for information
and found only what is detailed below.
born 1928, Amsterdam NY
JULLIARD Graduate School of Music - years ???
Winner MARIAN ANDERSON Award - year ???
MET debut: Die Zauberflöte 11/25/1950
August 1951 assaulted and robbed in Edinburgh
many MET appearances 1950-54
NY Times January 23, 1955 "signed a year s contract to sing leading soprano roles at the opera house in GELSENKIRCHEN, Germany."
a very brief April 13, 1961 NY Times obit for her mother Mrs. MARY WARNER states
"Miss Warner's married name is Countess Puslowski."
I assume this refers to Genevieve Warner - I can speculate that Warner married in
Germany and retired ??????
