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.
