Image of the Day
|Astrid Varnay - Brunnhilde, signed, 1947|
This image is my most treasured item of memorabilia, signed by the Diva herself in 1947. It's a brilliant photo with such camp qualities as only winged helmets can have.
So listen below to Brunnhilde's Awakening from Act 3 of Siegfried, sung with Wolfgang Windgassen. It's in glorious early stereo, possibly live from Bayreuth, 1955. Have a brilliant and inspired weekend.
