Allmächt’ge Jungfrau

Allmächt’ge Jungfrau //www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgEY7TypFv8 On this day in 1961 soprano Teresa Stich-Randall and tenor George Shirley made their Metropolitan Opera debuts in Così fan tutte. Robert Sabin in Musical America: Teresa Stich-Randall, who has acquired a formidable reputation in Europe as well as at home, at last reached the stage of the Metropolitan in this performance.

A Norman conquest

A Norman conquest

A Norman conquest However, the sad news of the soprano’s death this week compelled me to offer it as a special “Trove Thursday” salute: at the Ravinia Festival in 1978 Norman performed “Ch’io mi scordi di te;” Shéhérazade; Le Mort de Cléopâtre; Wesendonck Lieder; and the Liebestod during a single astonishing concert. The passing at the age of 74 of one of America’s greatest divas has shocked the many who were moved by her artistry. ... Read More »

If I had a photograph of you
