Eleanor Steber: an autobiography
American soprano Eleanor Steber graced the Metropolitan Opera stage between 1940 & 1966, a quintessential Mozart interpreter who was equally skilled in Italian, German & French repertoire. A brilliant concert artist who toured the world, she was also for 10 years the most famous star of radio's "Voice of Firestone." Now, this flamboyant, enigmatic diva reveals her life & private thoughts with disarming candor. This is a truly American musical life--triumphant, funny, sometimes tragic, but ultimately victorious.
