Strauss: Die Frau ohne Schatten - Nilsson, Katsu, Berry, Wennberg, Ericson; Klobucar. Stockholm, 1975


Listen to a Sample:


Birgit Nilsson waited to embark on singing the Dyer's wife in Die Frau ohne Schatten.  These performances mark some of her first.  Already nearing the end of her career, she renders some glorious singing with ever powerful high Cs.  She is joined by Walter Berry, a veteran to this opera, as Barak who creates a touching portrayal of the frustrated husband.  The rest of the cast is also very good.  The sound is fair.
