Yes, it was Pobbe who sang Marguerite in "Faust" at the Met and on tour.
including Toronto (May 31, 1958).  I saw her in it myself with Nicolai
Gedda in the spring of 1958 at the Met (prior to the tour).

Miss Pobbe appeared in two roles at the Met, Marguerite in "Faust," and
Mimi in "Boheme."

Best regards,
Dan Kessler
