How to Sing
This remarkable book is one of the most influential works on the art of singing ever written. Its author is one of the first great international superstars of opera. German soprano Lilli Lehmann enjoyed a long and brilliant career that began in Prague and Danzig and soared to the heights of operatic renown in Berlin, Vienna, London and New York. Coached by Wagner himself, she took part in the first complete "Ring" cycle at Bayreuth in 1876, and sang in the first performances of "Tristian and Isolde" and the complete "Ring" cycle in America.
