Marguerite Piazza - Silent Night Vinyl Album

A collection of the best loved songs of Christmas. The most popular Christmas song ever written according to the Music Industry Survey was Silent Night. More people bought, played, requested or sang Silent Night than all others. Close behind of course was Jingle Bells, followed by, Away In A Manger, Joy to the World and The First Noel.

In 1944, Marguerite Piazza joined the New York City Opera, and was the youngest member of the company. Her first role was Nedda in Pagliacci, and in subsequent seasons appeared in La bohème (as Musetta), Der Zigeunerbaron, Don Giovanni (as Donna Elvira, in Theodore Komisarjevsky's production), and Amelia al ballo (as Amelia). She made her first appearance with the New Orleans Opera Association in Martha (in 1945), followed by Hänsel und Gretel (as Gretel), as well as the title role in Il segreto di Susanna. In 1950, Piazza made her Broadway debut, in Happy as Larry, with Burgess Meredith directing and starring in the title rôle, and Alexander Calder designing.

As a result of that production, the soprano was invited to join the cast of the NBC television program Your Show of Shows, which starred Sid Caesar and Imogene Coca (1950–54). She made her debut at the Metropolitan Opera in 1951, as Rosalinde von Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus. Following the end of Your Show of Shows, she embarked on a career in supper and night clubs, bringing her further acclaim as an entertainer.

Both the album cover and the vinyl album are used but in great condition. The inner sleeve is the original generic sleeve that came with the album.
