Book Meme Tagging

I was tagged by Eoin over at Eoin Purcell’s Blog. The rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.

I am at the Reference Desk so I am picking up the Reference book I just used to help a patron:

1) Merriam Webster's Biographical Dictionary (1995) [99989797695]
2) The sixth, seventh and eight sentences on page 123 read:

Staatsoper (1921-27); musical director, Darmstadt (1927-31), Hamburg (1931-34), Dresden (1934-43), Vienna Staatsoper (1943-45, 1954-56); won international recognition esp. as interpreter of Mozart, Wagner,

Bonus points to whoever knows who this is!

And I tag in turn: Jennie's Rambles, ahistoricality, Autism Blog, Whitterer on Autism, and World of Royalty.

Update: OK, I messed up the rules. It is sentence 6, 7, 8 and not lines 6, 7, and 8. Due to being tagged again at the Information Literacy Land of Confusion, I did it better at Book Meme Tagging, Part Two.

Sadly this isn't exactly my area of expertise, but I'll try and get on it at the weekend. Thank you so much for thinking of me.
Best wishes

Hey Michael, you 'stole' one of my "tags!" (See comment above). Now I'll have to stretch a little.

Coincidentally, my nearest book was about American Presidents!

Oops -- sorry that I didn't see this before. I didn't know I had been tagged! I'll respond on my blog (which has a new location now).
