Rise Stevens

On January 8, 2006 Rise Stevens was honored by the Metropolitan Opera Guild at the Rose Theater down at the Time Warner Building at Columbus Circle.  It was a love fest.  There should be an umlaut over the "e" in Rise's name. I can't figure how to do that on this blog site.  The images are now, obviously, totally emotional.  First Rise with Anna Moffo.
Rise with Van Cliburn.  The background could not be changed, because it was hard for her to move around.
Onstage at tribute with son, Nicolas Surovy, and Van Cliburn.
This was a beautiful evening, a sold out house, a wonderful tribute to a beautiful lady.
