Lawrence Tibbett (1896-1960) was born in Bakersfield, California. He sang in church and in school as a youth, and later studied under the noteworthy teachers Basil Ruysdael and Frank La Forge.
 
Tibbett made his first operatic appearance in Boris Godunoff at the Metropolitan Opera in 1923, where he continued singing a variety of small roles for two years. In 1925 his performance in the opera Falstaff was so dazzling it completely overshadowed the opera’s lead role and provoked a response from the crowd that was “not exceeded in many years.” He then went on to become the lead baritone at the Metropolitan, where he performed for the next 27 seasons.
 
Tibbett sang in the premiere performances of many American operas such as Louis Gruenberg’s The Emperor Jones – the first world premier to be broadcast live from the Metropolitan, Deems Taylor’s The King’s Henchman and Peter Ibbetson, and Howard Hanson’s Merry Mount.
 
A versatile performer, Tibbett appeared in the musical films The Rogue Song, The New Moon, The Southerner, Cuban Love Song, and Metropolitan. He also performed on Broadway, and was one of America’s most popular recital and radio singers.
