Paying tribute to a New Orleans legend: bass-baritone, Norman Treigle.

In 2012, the plaza adjacent to the Mahalia Jackson Theater in Armstrong Park was dedicated to the memory of the great New Orleans bass-baritone, Norman Treigle. Although the New Orleans City Council approved this great honor, currently no visible public recognition exists at the plaza, which we intend to remedy!

New Orleans Opera needs to raise $2,500 to create and install the plaque, which will read as follows:

Norman Treigle (1927-1975) was a native of New Orleans who won fame as the leading bass-baritone of the Americas and as an incomparable singing-actor. He made his operatic debut in 1947, at the Municipal Auditorium, and inaugurated the Theater for the Performing Arts in 1973.

Your donation helps to honor Norman Treigle and create a lasting legacy for all New Orleanians to be aware of his contribution to the field of opera.
