Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Although the term ‘legendary’ is all too frequently coined, its usage is both appropriate and justified when describing Magda Olivero. She was an unorthodox soprano whose career—notwithstanding various interruptions—spanned over half a century, from 1932 to 1990.” — Opera Quarterly “Although the term ‘legendary’ is all too frequently coined, its usage is both appropriate and justified when describing Magda Olivero.
