Was lucky to see Neblett in a couple of NYCO productions:  Margarita/Helen 
(MEFISTOFELE), Donna Elvira, Marie (TOTE STADT) and Poppea - physically 
stunning, full voiced and a good actress.  I also remember the brouhaha over 
her New Orleans THAIS when she dropped the front of her costume as the 
Act 1 curtain fell (I heard she was asked to pose for Playboy but said "she 
only stripped for her art!") - no nudity when she did THAIS in Baltimore.  I 
understand that her divorce from Kenneth Schermerhorn affected her very 
hard and thus her career.  She was one of the many bright lights of the 
golden age of the NYCO.
