Wilhelm Ganz in Covent Garden - 10 May, 1855
In 1855 came the first performance of Il Trovatore. I was asked to teach Madame Neybürde, a prima donna from Dresden, the part of Leonora, which I did. She had a magnificent and powerful soprano voice. Madame Viardot Garcia was superb as Azucena, Signor Tamberlik was the Trovatore, and Signor Graziani (the incomparable baritone) sang the part of the Conte di Luna.
