C. David Higgins, professor of music and chair of the Jacobs School's Department of Opera Studies, had finished graduate school at IU and was on the opera staff when Röthlisberger arrived. He worked with him until 1987, when Röthlisberger retired and returned to Switzerland. Röthlisberger passed away in 2003 at the age of 89. Read the full story.
