Metropolitan Opera

ABC Radio

This year the Committee is proud to make the award in music to the Metropolitan Opera Company, to its sponsor, the Texaco Company, and to ABC for their public service in making the most brilliant opera company in the world a by-word in millions of homes. It is a joy to hear the great artists and the superlative orchestra; the intermission notes enlarge the appreciation of old and young, and so do the satellite programs, such as the Auditions of the Air, and the Opera Album. In this year, a special word of praise for the sumptuous televising by ABC of the Met’s opening performance of Verdi’s famous opera, Don Carlo.
