Can someone provide additional information about this MET opera singer - I've searched the internet for information

and found only what is detailed below.



Cheers, Thomas.



Genevieve Warner

born 1928, Amsterdam NY


education ???

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 ??????
