Lucrezia Bori (1887-1960) began her career at the Metropolitan Opera in the summer of 1910 during the Met's first visit to Paris. On June 9 of that year she replaced a singer who had become ill in the role of Manon in Puccini's Manon Lescaut. On the opening night of the 1912-13 season, she made her debut with the Met in New York when she sang Manonopposite Enrico Caruso.
