Reference: Iosif Sava Cu Ludovic Spiess prin teatrale lirice ale lumii, Editura Muzicala, Bucuresti, 1989. Since I do not speak Romanian, I probably left out important facts. Spiess sang probably a lot more roles including operettas. The book is quite confusing and lacking in a chronology.
I wish to thank Thomas Silverbörg for the recordings (Samson et Dalila, Turandot).
I wish to thank Roberto Falcone for the pictur (private).
I wish to thank Vladimir Efimenko for the picture (Calaf).
