The Who to Perform

Rock Opera at the Met

NEW YORK (AP) ~- The Who, a
British rock quartet, will perform its
best-known rock Opera, “Tommy” at the
Metmpolitan Opera House on J une 7.

The Lincoln Center opera house, which
seldom houses even classical modern has
never been used for a pep opera. The
Who is renting the hall.

The Who has presented “Tommy”
at Opera houses in EurOpe and earlier
this year performed it for a week at
Fillmore East, where the customary
sound is rock. “Tommy,” about a deaf
and blind boy, was written by Who
guitarist Peter Townshend.
