Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gota Ljungberg studied at the Stockholm Conservatory with the same teacher who taught among others, Kirsten Flagstad. She also studied in Milan and Berlin. In 1916 she made her debut at the Royal Opera in Stockholm as Gutrune in Gotterdammerung. She remained here until 1926, singing many roles with a young Jussi Bjorling. She next appeared regularly at Covent Garden until 1929. In 1932, she made her MET debut as Sieglinde in Die Walkure. She appeared here for four seasons, creating the role of Lady Marigold Sandys in Howard Hanson's opera Merry Mount. In the mid-thirties, her voice began to show signs of rapid decline. A performance as Elisabeth in Tannhauser at Stockholm's Royal Opera in 1937 seems to have been one of her last operatic Read more performances. For some time she settled in New York City where she taught singing. She briefly came out of retirement but did finally return to Sweden where she died in 1955. Read less
