BIRGIT NILSSON

“A League of Her Own”

In June we featured the great heldentenor Jess Thomas, it only seemed right to feature Birgit Nilsson, a true friend and compliment. Nilsson may be one of the greatest Wagnerian Sopranos of all time. Born in Västra Karup in southern Sweden to a farming family on 17 May 1918. She sang a wide variety of dramatic soprano roles, but her reputation was based on her mastery of some of the most punishing in the repertory, whether excelling as the fire- and-ice heroine of Puccini's Turandot, or in the roles of Isolde, Brünnhilde or Sieglinde, which confirmed her as a successor to Kirsten Flagstad, and second to none. This documentary traces her life, career and most importantly her vocal technique that made her into glorious power-singer of our time.
