Throughout his 24-year tenure at the Metropolitan Opera, Lauritz Melchior reigned supreme as the heroic tenor of his time. He was acclaimed by many critics as the last great "Heldentenor" and his performances in "Tristan und Isolde", "Siegfried", "Goetterdaemmerung" "Lohengrin", "Tannhauser" and "Parsifal" remain well-known. His portrayal of Isolde's beloved inspired Toscanini's appellation "Tristanissimo". He later became a popular star, appearing on the Fred Allen show and starring in several movies. The author had access to unpublished papers and interviewed dozens of his friends and colleagues.
