Vesti la giubba!" is translated as "On With the Play!"

Composer is Leoncavallo

Paul Shearer Althouse was born on December 2, 1889, in Reading, Pennsylvania.

He died on February 6, 1954.

He was the first American tenor without European experience to sing at the Met. He appeared annually at Met for the six years.

But the tenor seems forgotten today. I've never met record collectors excited by his discs, and as a solo artist he recorded material that Caruso covered (I would rather listen to Caruso).

Working for Victor, he took part in many ensemble productions, such as the Victor Light Opera Company recordings.
