Synopsis: My mother's career in English musical comedy as well as mine in German opera and American academia led to fascinating meetings or friendships with George Bernard Shaw, Dame Nellie Melba, Liza Lehmann, Kate Smith, Eileen Farrell, Maria von Trapp, Frederick Jagel, Francis Robinson, Wieland Wagner, Wilfred C. Bain, Berta Morena, Maria Ivogün and Marta Fuchs. This book chronicles these experiences.

About the Author: The Author: Elizabeth Nash received her B.F.A. from Columbia University and was awarded a two year Fulbright Grant to study opera in Germany. For the next ten years, she was a leading soprano in German opera houses. She then returned to the United States and earned an M.A. at Teachers College, Columbia University, followed by a Ph.D. at Indiana University. Since 1975, she has been Head of Voice Studies in the Theatre Arts Department at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Nash is the author of the biographies Always First Class: The Career of Geraldine Farrar and The Luminous Ones: A History of the Great Actresses.
