    It is supposed to air at 9pm on Friday night, but I can't find it on my local PBS station.

    Almost half of the views I have on my Youtube channel are just for this clip of Nilsson singing the end of Siegfried live. The comments are fun to read. Nilsson still has a big audience! The rest of my speeches are my Toastmaster speeches, where opera plays second fiddle to the organist Cameron...

    I am doing a speech on Nilsson and will focus in one part on her acting. I know she had incredible successes when she worked with Wieland Wagner later in her career and she wrote about it in her book. With his Elektra she had 77 curtain calls!!!!!!! Did any of you see her live and can comment...

  5. Opera
    We often see reference on TC to the numerous performances by Maria Callas which we wish had been recorded, but what other performances are you aware of which would be fascinating to hear?

    If you could go back in time and hear the great Birgit Nilsson in a live opera, which one would be your number one choice. She would certainly be one of the greatest interpreters of any of these roles. I used bad English for the poll question but don't know how to change it.
  9. Opera
    Sorry, no link! I post this somewhat provocative headline :lol: in honor of my receiving today La Nilsson -- My Life In Opera, the great diva's autobiography. Full of a self-deprecating sense of humor, the book is one I have only started but one that promises to be an immensely enjoyable read...
