Colo.. (AP)-The onetime "Voice of Occupied Denmark" is ringing out these days in the concert, halls of (lie United States. j Aksel Schiotz, now a profes-; sor of voice at. the University i of Colorado, was a Danish national idol during the German occupation in World War II. ; His singing of Denmark's i half-forgotten patriotic songs made life dangerous for him, as it kept his countrymen, aware of national identity.; The Danish underground warned Schiotz to wear a pistol to protect himself against an : unexpected attempt by the oc- ( cupation troops to silence him. That was what had happened to Kai Mtink, preacher, patriot and playwright, who was murdered by the Germans, and at whose funeral Schiotz sang. But the nocturnal knock at the door never came, although. | Schiolz's wife Gerda said. "I ! only slept well when he was not at, home." McNeese Picks One-Act Opera For July 23 "Mese Mariano", a work of , the 20th century Italian com- j poser, Umberto Giordano, has been selected as the annual, summer one-act opera to be' presented by McNeese State ; College. The production is scheduled for Thursday, July 23, the opera will be presented at 8 p.m. in the college's Ralph Squires The- aater. Frederick T o o 1 e y, assist- \ ant professor of music and di- ! rector of the opera said, the music of " Mariano" (the month of Mary) is in the Iradi-i tion of the verismo works of Pietro Mascagni and Ruggiero Leoncavallo. , First performed in Palermo, Italy, in 1910, the opera made its United Stales debut in Carnegie Hall, New York, by the ' Tolibia Opera Showcase in 1955. "Its presentation here," Tooley said, "marks its first performance not only in English,' but (he first west of the Missis- j sippi River." McNeese students who w i 11 appear in the production are, from Lake Charles, Hope. Hack-; ler, Peggy Hewett, Nancy Bond, Donna Chapman and L. ; Thomas Withrow. j Others are Lorraine LeBoeuf i of Montegut; Mary Koonce, De-, Quincy, and Barbara Vincent, •; Sulphur. Also appearing will be Mary i Helen Marshall, daughter of Dr. ' George R. Marshall of the Me-: Neese fine arts faculty, in a : child role and Tooley as an older man. The slory is set in an orphanage. Miss Marshall and fellow members of the children's choir ', of the First MethodiM Church here will portray children of the orphanage. Others in the group are Kd- win Carmouche, Dianne Curry, Ken Davis, Daphne Fish, Kathy Malarkey, Mary Malarkey, Janet Mayo, Mike Mayo. Gerald Preston, Hamj> Simmons, Diane Terreli. Pamela Terrell and Ellen Toney. It was after the war that the, most serious Ihrea! to Schiotz's j life and career occurred. An operation for a tumor on; the auditory nerve left (he right i side of the singer's face para-1 lyzed, just as he w : as resinning! what critics said had the prom-i ise of a great cnreer. i He had sung the leading tenor j part in Benjamin Britten's new opera. "The Hape of Lucretia." j at the Olyndebourne Festival in : England, and had recordings of Schubert and Schumann ; song cycles for His Master's! Voice in London. He was planning a recital tour of Die United Slates. ; Removal of (he tumor, however, left him seemingly with; no chance of regaining control i of thr facial musclrs used in singing. As soon as he could stand and walk. Schio!/, began a tedious, retraining program. Part of his (hurapy consisted of listening to i his own earlier records, striv- ! ing lo rmipturp the breath control and the tonal clarity that had been his before the operation. By 1948. two years after the tumot had been removed, Schiotz felt able to return to the concert stage for an occasional performance, even though he had not regained full control of the paralyzed muscles. He sang Bach and Beethoven and the Casals Festival in Per- pigarian, France, that year. Pr6gress has been slow. But now, at the age of 57, when most singers are thinking in terms of farewell concerts, Schiotz and a New York agent are planning his biggest year of singing since 1946. A major American record company Is preparing to make his many recordings again available here. Arid Schiotz is augmenting a repertory that includes works in German, Russian, Italian, Spanish, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian— and an English diction so refined that he once was askftd to teach singers a course in it— their native language— at the University of Toronto.
