Remarks by Rudolf Bing before the performance:

"Another great tragedy has befallen the Metropolitan Opera and indeed the musical world. Our beloved Dimitri Mitropoulos died this morning in Milan. You all loved him, and you know he was one of the great musicians and great conductors of our time, and also an outstanding human being. His loss is felt personally by everyone at the Metropolitan - indeed all the members of this orchestra were his friends. Naturally the Metropolitan Opera will go on and other great conductors may come and go, but there will always be a very special place in our hearts for Dimitri Mitropoulos."
