FLAGSTAD sings Gluck's Alceste

Kirsten Flagstad's US career ended triumphantly in 1952, when she sang the title role of Gluck's Alceste at the Met in performances that garnered rave reviews: "she could not bid farewell to the American operatic public more nobly and more unforgettably", "magnificent in every respect", "the greatest dramatic soprano of our day gave one of the most distinguished performances of her illustrious career."

The matinee performance of 29 March 1952 was broadcast to the nation, and now receives a superb Ambient Stereo XR-remastered release. An unmissable treat for all opera fans!
