51-02-14 Bizet Carmen Frasquita Philadelphia PA (Academy of Music) - Philadelphia Civic Grand Opera Company Winifred Heidt, Raoul Jobin, Martial Singher, June Natelson Giuseppe Bamboschek Sills states in "Beverly" that she made her operatic debut with the Philadelphia Opera Company in February 1947 as Frasquita. According to Frank Hamilton's exhaustive Philadelphia opera annals, there was no Carmen in Feb. 1947. This February 1951 performance had the same leads and conductor as the one that Sills says took place in 1947, so it is likely that this is Sills' true operatic debut.
