Eisode 19: 1950-1951

Zinka Milanov

Alfred Hubay, in his 8th season as an usher for the Metropolitan Opera, talks about the returns of two icons of operatic singing, Zinka Milanov in a new but short-lived production of Cavalleria rusticana/Pagliacci and Kirsten Flagstad - the controversy, her single Ring cycle and two roles that mimicked her own life. (Part 3 of 3).
