“Thousands of beaming New Yorkers, having heard the Pelléas et Mélisande broadcast, had come out into that fine spring evening. . . . They stood massed in a cordon that stretched from the Plaza fountain, down Fifth Avenue, and west across Fifty-seventh Street all the way to Carnegie Hall, then around Seventh Avenue to the Fifty-sixth Street artists’ entrance.” — Mawrdew Czgowchwz
