    Renata Tebaldi's New York farewell concert was a deeply emotional affair. The soprano's New York fans were among her most ardent and Tebaldi considered the city her second home. Carnegie Hall was packed for the event and Tebaldi gave her fans a night to treasure. No one who was present at the concert will ever forget Tebaldi walking the width of the stage while singing her final encore as the audience surged to the proscenium to get as close to her as possible.
