Opernwahrheiten von Ileana Cotrubas
Opernwahrheiten von Ileana Cotrubas
I have read this memoir with unfailing interest. It is special, as it concentrates on negative aspects. The author gives much room for bitterness. She clearly states that she doesn't like the way opera as artform is handled. But she is very openhearted and honest and has a lot to tell. The most fascinating chapter tells about a last minute replacement as Mimi in Boheme at La Scala with Pavarotti. She was asked very late and her telling of how she and her husband made their way to Milano is quite unbelievable. The performance started - if I remember correctly - three hours late, around midnight. Cotrubas was unknown to the Scala public and had a tremendous success. You MUST read about this… Mehr dazu

After having made operatic debut as Turandot (!) at the Malmö Opera i Sweden someone sent a tape to the MET. She made her debut there as Fidelio in a radiotransmitted performance, and later sang Turandot. James Levine arranged a special concert for her at Carnegie Hall. Later on Miss Sunnegårdh has mainly been singing in Europe, roles like Fidelio, Turandot, Tosca, Jenufa, Senta, Chrysotemis, Salome. She will soon take on two new roles: Kaiserin in DIe Frau ohne Schatten and Euryanthe. The record in question here is produced by herself and the costs covered ny gifts and donations. I think the result is exceptional. A clear, fresh voice with a wonderful freedom in the upper register. I… Mehr dazu

La Nilsson von Birgit Nilsson
5.0 von 5 Sternen A wonderful memoir, 19. April 2014
This is wonderful biography written by Nilsson herself. Its filled with information about her career and of other artists and conductors. The first chapter take us to New York and her great breakthrough as a sensational Isolde at the MET. She discusses how to handle being famous and tells about a very disturbing stalker, a woman who took her life in a hotel room at the same hotel NIlsson and her husband were staying in Vienna. Nilsson had tried to resolve the problem by inviting the woman to a meeting and begged her to stop stalking. But this woman traveled with her all over the world writing disturbing notes an claiming to others that she and the opera star were near friends. She somehow… Mehr dazu
