From Friends,  Classmates
   and Others Who Remember...

….a friend from the Dallas Opera...

I sang for six years with the Dallas Opera and was in three operas with Ruth. She was the first Lakmé I heard. I still remember her entrance on the stage singing from behind the sets and slowly coming on. Her voice was incredible in Lucia. To hear her sing the whole mad scene transposed up to F was fantastic. I was on stage for all those rehearsals. I would come to the extra rehearsals just to hear her sing.

...a friend from the Florida Opera…

When Ruth sang Lucia in the Florida Opera's "Lucia di Lammermoor" in the early eighties, I was privileged to sing in the chorus.  As Ruth made her way on stage to begin the mad scene, I remember thinking to myself that I had never heard it sung so beautifully before that.  It was so overwhelming I wept there on stage.
