Biography | show moreshow less
Richard Crooks (1900-1972) made his operatic debut in 1927 in Hamburg, Germany as Cavaradossi, the role in which he made his American debut in Philadelphia three years later. Crooks made his debut at the Metropolitan opera in 1933 and remained with the company for the next decade. He is best known, however, for his recordings of ballads and for his hundreds of radio broadcasts, especially as a regular on The Voice of Firestone (from 1932). It was on that program in 1945 that Crooks failed to hit a high note, and he retired on the spot.
