Publisher Description

Alice Nielsen was a magnetic star of Broadway, opera, and concerts. Her mom an Irish musician, dad a Danish troubadour. Born in Nashville, raised in Kansas City, young Alice sang on streets until she took the vaudeville trail to San Francisco. She starred in three bespoke Victor Herbert hits before crossing to opera in 1901 Italy, coached by Bevignini. She debuted in Naples then London's Covent Garden in Mozart, and Puccini with Caruso. She gave joint drama-opera productions with Duse. Returning to America, Nielsen joined Nordica to create a touring opera company regarded as superior to the Met. Boston Opera was built for her in 1909. Famed as America's greatest lyric soprano, this is her first biography. Discover how Alice Nielsen became Americana. “On Tuesday night she sang Lucia, on Wednesday evening she sang Marguerite, on Thursday evening she was Mimi, giving a portrait in harmony that will endure as long as the memories of those who heard and saw her," wrote Otheman Stevens, LA.
