The George Foster Peabody Television Award in music goes to NBC Television Opera Theatre, for its imaginative and stunning productions, splendidly cast and beautifully sung, directed and conceived. Praise goes to many people for this enterprise: to General David Sarnoff, to Peter Herman Adler, the music and artistic director, and to Samuel Chotzinoff, the producer. Last year saw some memorable productions: Verdi’s Macbeth, Bizets Carmen, Strauss’ Rosenkavalier. Far from enough fine music is being encouraged on television, and it is with real pleasure that we salute those at NBC who have had the faith and the wisdom to present the NBC Television Opera Theatre.
