This release is an intimate portrait of Birgit Nilsson (1918-2005) on the occasion of her centennial on May 18, 2018. The Swedish singer was the world’s leading dramatic soprano between 1955 and 1975.

A League of Her Own reveals a sensitive woman behind the honest, down to earth, quick-witted artist who had “a voice like fire and ice” (Antonio Pappano). Shot at the farm in Bastad, Sweden, where Nilsson grew up and spent the summers until the end of her life; at the Royal Opera in Stockholm, where the legendary Wagnerian singer made her operatic debut in 1946; and in places like the Bayreuth Festival, the Wiener Staatsoper and the Metropolitan Opera in New York, where Nilsson was the star and box office draw.

Rare TV and archive footage shows Nilsson at work and is complemented by interviews with Plácido Domingo, Otto Schenk, James Levine, Nina Stemme, Jonas Kaufmann, Marilyn Horne, Christa Ludwig, and many others.
