Wilhelm Ganz in Covent Garden - 19 February, 1910
The climax came with the production of Elektra at Covent Garden under the enterprising direction of Mr. Thomas Beecham. I went to the rehearsals of the opera, so as to get to know the music, and at the first performance on February 19th, 1910, as I could not get a seat, I stood for the whole of the performance not bad for a man of my age !
