On This Day...

A DAILY FACTOID OF OUR ART HISTORY

Jan. 24

Opera composer John Laurence Seymour's disastrous Met opera premiere took place on this day (1935): In the Pasha's Garden. It "...had its premiere at the Metropolitan last week and established an all-time record for dullness and ineptitude," proclaimed Time magazine 2/4/1935.
