Samuel Barber

Samuel Barber

(1910–1981)

 

 

 

Barber was an American composer who penned two major operas, Vanessa and Antony and Cleopatra.

Antony and Cleopatra was the opera chosen as the vehicle for Leontyne Price in the inaugural performance at the opening of the new Metropolitan Opera House... and it did not go without controversy although she and Barber maintained a longterm friendship and association until his death.
