Kirsten Flagstad (1895 - 1962)

Kirsten Flagstad was born into a musical family: her father Michael was a conductor and her mother Marie a pianist. She initially studied singing in Oslo with Ellen Schytte-Jacobsen and made her operatic stage debut in the small part of Nuri / Tiefland at the National Theatre, Oslo in 1913 while continuing her vocal studies with Albert Westwang in Oslo and Gillis Bratt in Stockholm. After a successful concert debut in the Aula of Oslo University during 1918, Flagstad married during the following year and joined the itinerant Opera Comique, recently established in Oslo. She proved to be a quick learner of scores and her parts included Desdemona / Otello (opposite Leo Slezak), Minnie / La fanciulla del West and Amelia / Un ballo in maschera as well as other roles in operettas and musical comedies. In 1928, the year in which her marriage was dissolved, Flagstad moved to the Stora Theatre in Gothenburg, where her debut was as Agathe / Der Freischütz. Two years later she sang Michal in Saul and David by Carl Nielsen, who described her interpretation as possessing ‘genius’.
