Jeritza and Newark a toxic-combination post-mortem.

ArtsPRunlimited, Inc.Former Maria Jeritza estate in serious disrepair in Newark.While giving a tour to a colleague from New York for the Cherry Blossoms, I took a detour to show him the Jeritza estate. It was a mistake a few days ago.The roof of the guest house seems to be imploding. This would be a Historic Landmark disaster for the Forest Hill section of Newark and the Opera community from here to Vienna and The Met.
In conjunction with The Metropolitan new production of DER ROSENKAVALIER they honored Jeritza on the Grand Tier with an exhibit of her costume jewelry as worn on The Met stage. A colleague brought it to my attention only a few years ago so Jeritza is still honored and remembered at The Met.Maria Jeritza was a superstar at the Metropolitan, Vienna, Czech, + LaScala Opera who premiered Opera’s by Puccini, Strauss, + Janacek. Jeritza also loved, lived, and stayed at her home and estate in Newark NJ for 40 years. Let’s not abandon her heritage now.
The New York Times noted in their obituary she was a star of Opera’s Golden Age in the 20th century. She was an Opera Diva, who lived, retired, and died In Newark in 1982 at 94. She attended and supported opera at The Mosque Theatre and Symphony Hall in Newark, NJ. Her appearances would generate instant applause at each performance with her blond hair and blue tinted glasses.Homage to Maria Jeritza, who resided In Newark and made opera andmusic history in Brno, Newark, The Met, Vienna and inspired and worked with Giacomo Puccini, Leos Janacek, and Richard Strauss during her stellar career.MARIA JERITZA, STAR OF OPERA’S ‘GOLDEN AGE,’ DIES AT 94 …www.nytimes.com/1982/…/maria-jeritza-star-of-opera-s-golden-age-dies-at-94 .- Maria Jeritza, the internationally renowned soprano who has beencalled … Miss Jeritza was one of the great artists of opera’s”golden age,” (1887-1982) longtime resident of Newark,NJ who sang for Richard Strauss, Leos Janacek, and Giacomo Puccini:Premiere’s at the Met, Vienna, Brno, LaScala in her illustrious career in Europe and the United States.Richard Strauss wrote 4 Last Songs (and one last song for Maria(Jeritza ) who retired to Newark after her international opera careerfrom Vienna to The Met.Puccini loved Jeritza as his favorite TOSCA.
