The Essential Audrey Schuh

Brian Morgan "Brian Morgan"
The list author says: "Audrey Schuh is a New Orleans-born lyric soprano who was acclaimed for her performances at the New York City Opera, the San Francisco Opera, and the New Orleans Opera Association."

"This is one of the legendary nights (1959) in the history of the New Orleans Opera.  Miss Schuh is an adorable vixen as Musetta, and holds her own against four of the century's most famous stars:  Licia Albanese, Giuseppe di Stefano, Giuseppe Valdengo, and Norman Treigle!"

"This is Miss Schuh's only world-premiere (1966), and the recording is fantastic.  She and her friend, Norman Treigle, ignite the stage in this exciting opera from the South's favorite composer, Carlisle Floyd."
Elektra

"For the list author, Schuh gives us a definitive Chrysothemis (1966), co-starring with Inge Borkh, Regina Resnik, Alan Crofoot, and Benjamin Rayson.  A triumph!"
Falstaff
Falstaff
"Audrey Schuh is a captivating Nannetta, to the Falstaff of Leonard Warren (1956).  The baritone was so taken with her that, when the San Francisco Opera was searching for a Nannetta, he recommended Schuh, who sang it alongside Warren and Dame Elisabeth Schwarzkopf!"

"The page-boy, Oscar, was Schuh's first major role, at the age of eighteen (1950)!  Even her Riccardo, Jussi Bjoerling, was impressed by the petite soprano."
