Tribute to Brigit Nilsson
To celebrate the centenary of her birth on May 17, 1918

From the Met Opera Radio Channel home page:
The Swedish soprano, who made her debut in 1959 as Isolde in Tristan und
Isolde, went on to sing more than 200 performances of 16 roles and may be
best known for portrayals of commanding heroines of the German canon — from
the title characters of Richard Strauss’ Salome and Elektra to Brünnhilde
in Wagner’s Die Walküre and Leonore in Beethoven’s Fidelio.  But when
Nilsson turned to the Italian repertoire, as she did on 93 occasions, the
results were equally riveting. Her portrayal of the icy princess Turandot —
the role she sang a record 52 times with the company — will go down as one
of the most electrifying performances of any artist in Met history.

Met Opera Radio will proudly present the channel’s archive broadcast
premiere of Turandot
May 15 at 12 pm ET; May 17 at 6pm ET; May 19 at 9 am ET
