As I just told Enzo, I saw her at my first Staatsoper performance in Vienna in Marguerite in Faust...with a rather-over-the-hill Kmennt as Faust,
Ghuiselev subbing for Ghiaurov as Mefistofele..and Milnes, 3 days after his
Vienna Macbeth debut, as Valentin.

I had not heard her previously at the Met - my only impression of her that
night was that she hadn't had an ounce of stage rehearsal and was clueless
where to go on stage. Apart from a glorious-sounding Milnes, it was not a
great evening. I prefer to remember the performances I saw later that week
(e.g. a Zauberfloete with a young Auger as the Queen, the Macbeth with Ludwig
and Milnes, a Don Carlos with Jurinac, a Nozze with Janowitz, and Jurinac's
25th anniversary Rosenkavalier..with Popp subbing as Sophie..quite a week :D)
