玛丽安安德森 (Marian Anderson) 在大都会歌剧院 (Metropolitan Opera) 登台表演:195517

玛丽安.安德森在十多岁的时候就在宾州费城打工赚取微薄的薪资,以负担歌唱课程的费用。你知道她曾经梦想在纽约的大都会歌剧院表演吗?如果她真的办到了,那么来自家庭与社会上对她的支持,肯定是她梦想成真的最大因素。西元1955年1月7日,安德森成为第一个登上美国最负盛名的大都会歌剧院表演的非裔美籍人士。安德森在朱瑟贝.威尔第 (Giuseppe Verdi) 所写的歌剧假面舞会 (Un Ballo in Maschera) 中扮演一位算命师。

As a teenager, Marian Anderson worked at low-paying jobs in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in order to earn money for her singing lessons. Do you think she ever dreamed of performing at the Metropolitan Opera ("the Met") in New York City? If she did, the support of her family and community helped make that dream become a reality. On January 7, 1955, she became the first African American to perform at the Met, America's most highly esteemed opera house. Anderson sang the role of a fortuneteller in an opera by the Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi, called Un Ballo in Maschera ("A Masked Ball").
