"With the Met, Ms. Allen sang the role of Commere in Mr. Thomson’s “Four Saints in Three Acts” in 1973; she later participated in the first complete recording of the work.

Earline Heath King September 19, 2006
Virginia Foxx, R-NC
"Earline’s contributions to the art world expand beyond her own commissioned work. Along with five other painters and sculptors, she opened a gallery over 30 years ago in Winston-Salem called Art Gallery Originals. At their gallery in Reynolda Village, Earline still provides a workshop once a year where emerging artists and novice artists can exhibit their creations. In 1993 Earline was honored with a show in the Luigi Bellini Gallery in Florence, Italy, highlighting the extensive works of her career. She was the very first woman sculptor to be exhibited by the gallery. The show was a tremendous success and was attended by both fellow Americans living in Italy and by the diplomatic community."

From the time she joined the English National Opera, Ms. Eaglen garnered acclaim in a variety of roles until her breakthrough casting as Donna Anna in Mozart’s Don Giovanni at the Scottish Opera."
