Boston theatre critic Elliot Norton interviews prominent actors, directors and producers on their craft. (Aired from October, 1958 to 1982. Winner of both Peabody and Tony Awards.) Series release date: 1958
- Program Description
How does an ex-football player, son of a proud, tradition bound Greek restaurant owner discover that he has not a good, but a great voice? And what is the life style and process of training that voice until one day you are there on the operatic stage, singing with Beverly Sills?
In a highly moving and personal account of his singing career and family background, handsome, rugged, exuberant, internationally known young basso, spiro Malas, gives more of himself and his song in one half hour than most performers do in two seasons of a weekly series!
Mr. Malas so enjoys singing all kinds of music that he brings an accompanist (lute and banjo) to his interview with Mr. Norton and sings a Greek folk song, and two American ones. It is a rare treat.
Re-run August 21, 1973.
