Eric Rowton, noted tenor appearing in Mason City in "Carmen" at the Roosevelt fieldhouse Thursday, Nov. 3, has sung his way around the world in leading opera houses under the direction of the greatest conductors of this age. . After completing his training in Berlin, Vienna and Rome, Mr. Rowton arrived in America to give the most successful debut of the season. A winner of the "Metropolitan Auditions of the Air" Mr. Rowton is scheduled for a 1951 appearance at the Metropolitan opera house in New York. This engagement, coupled with an offer to sing at La Scala in Milan, Italy, establishes the young tenor as an accomplished, artist recognized by the v/orld's most fastidious music critics. On Major Networks Mr. Rowton appeared many times over the major networks singing with the Detroit symphony orchestra on the Sunday evening hour. He' has just recently returned from a successful engagement in Europe where he gave concerts in London, Paris, Amsterdam, Zurich, Milan and Rome. He sang the role of Radames in "Aida" with the Vienna state opera company, for which he earned glittering praise for the exceptional timbre and volume of his voice. Eric Rowton is recognized as one of the leading tenors' whenever perfect enunciation, dramatic ability and thorough intei-preta- tion are indispensable. Spotlighting this great work as a tear de force for its brilliant cast, large chorus, corps de ballet and symphony orchestra, the New York civic opera's forthcoming presentation holds forth high promise for a musical event of high import. All the thrilling arias, duets and ensembles, including the famous "Habonera," "Flower Song," and "Toreador Song" will be sung in superb investitures, inviting favorable comparison with the finest traditional performances that "Carmen" has ever been given. Has Micaela Role Another important singer in the opera is Florey Wyantt, soprano, who sings the part of Micaela in "Carmen."
