Covent Garden celebrated the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II with a glamorous season of opera.
In addition to the world premiere of Benjamin Britten's Gloriana,the gala 1953 season boasted performances by Maria Meneghini Callas in Il trovatore and Aida, her first Covent Garden performances since her debut as Norma in the fall of 1952.
For Aida David Webster placed John Barbirolli on the podium and surrounded Callas with a strong cast—Giulietta Simionato, Kurt Baum, Jess Walters, and Giulio Neri, with Joan Sutherland, then in her first Covent Garden season, as the priestess.
