The Met’s Polish soprano has died at 91Opera
The death has been reported in Monaco of the outstanding opera soprano Teresa Zylis-Gara.
A member of the Deutsche Oper Berlin from 1965, she was signed by Rudolf Bing at the Met three years later and sang in the next 14 seasons. Her 1984 farewell, after 233 performances, was in the title role of Puccini’s Manon Lescaut.
She recorded extensively with many leading conductors, though not apparently with Herbert von Karajan.
