La Nilsson: My Life in Opera

The autobiography of Swedish opera legend Birgit Nilsson is a candid and utterly charming memoir revealing the personality behind one of the great voices of the 20th century, gracefully weaving together the private and professional. The book details her rise to international stardom with behind-the-scenes recollections of her phenomenal triumph as Turandot at La Scala in 1958 and her headline-making Met debut in Tristan und Isolde the following year.

Includes 56 photographs and a discography.
