Tebaldi was slated to sing Santuzza in the "June Festival" at the MET in the early 1970's. It was to be with Corelli. Tebaldi withdrew before she was announced. In terms of WERTHER - Bing approached her about singing Charlotte with Corelli. As she had never performed in French  Tebaldi asked for time to prepare before making her decision. When she finally contacted Bing to consent he told her that he had given the part to Crespin. There is a story that Chapin asked Tebaldi to consider mezzo roles for the future --apparently it was the last conversation they had. BILL

While everyone appears to agree that a complete 'Norma' would not ever have
been possible for Tebaldi, she could have done a magnificent 'Deh, non
volerli vittime', one of the most noble and beautiful melodies in all opera
-- and so a perfect match for her unique instrument.
