Versatile Tenor Sang
With Grace Moore
All the glamor of the Metropoli
tan opera itself is in store for Uni
versity students when Raoul Jobin,
outstanding Metropolitan tenor, is
presented in a concert at 8 p.m.,
Thursday, October 26, at McArthur
.Mr. Jobin will sing such varying
numbers as the classical “Aupres
de Toi” by John Sebastian Bach,
and the more modern ‘‘Claire de
Lune” by Claude Debussy. A high
light of the evening will be his pre
sentation of the romantic “Flower
Song” from “Carmen,” by George
Bizet. Mr. Jobin is well known for
his iterpretation of Don Jose in
the opera “Carmen.” Also included
on the program will be a Buccini
aria from the opera “Tosca”; “Car
men,” by Jean Clergue; “Toujours”
by Gabriel Faure, and other selec
Mr. Jobin made his operatic
jjjfbut in France in the role of the
hot-tempered Tybalt in “Romeo
and Juliet”—a role which he has
repeated many times in Europe
and South America. Following his
debut, he toured the European
continent where he made 111 ap
pearances in fifteen months.
From Europe he went to South
America, where he sang at the
Teatro Municipal in Rio de Janiero.
Since his debut in the United
States, he has become one of the
leading tenors of the country. One
factor which has contributed to his
success is his ability to play widely
varied roles—and enjoy them all,
from Faust to Hoffman. Critics
say that each performance Jobin
makes brings to light new facets
of his skill.
Twice he has sung opposite
Grace Moore — the first time in
Paris in 1935, where the two artists
were starred in Charpentier’s
“Louise,” and in 1940 in New York,
where he made his debut at the
Metropolitan opposite Miss Moore
as Des Grieux in the opera "Ma
Mr. Jobin is being presented in
