I remember you mentioned how excited you were to have heard this girl, Jane Marsh, when you listened to her in the Met Auditions, and I can tell you that I knew immediately when I too heard Jane, and was later introduced to her-Jane having been originally recommended to me by my long time colleague, and Jane’s voice teacher at Oberlin College, Ellen Repp-that this would be a one in a million kind of singer. I have invited her to be in our next season, which she has refused, because of college, but I want the credit of her US Debut! The Met is in competition for that!
