B1004. FRANCES ALDA. Men, Women and Tenors. Boston, Houghton-Mifflin, 1937. 307pp. Photos; DJ
"In her retirement Frances Alda wrote a spirited volume of memoirs MEN, WOMEN AND TENORS, which makes a good read, but the portrait she paints of herself....is chiefly remarkable for what it does not tell. For nearly twenty years, married to the general manager Giulio Gatti-Casazza, Alda was Queen of the Metropolitan where she wielded enormous influence."
