Dorothy Kirsten was a major American soprano who had a fine career at the Metropolitan Opera and in many other places. She has pulled back a bit on her operatic voice for this lighter work, and done so with great success. Her diction is flawless, even in the Vilia song/Viljalied, which very definitely demands an voice. This is a rather lovely 1952 studio cast album of THE MERRY WIDOW starring renowned soprano Dorothy Kirsten in the titular lead role. Broadway fans will delight in hearing CANDIDE's Robert Rounseville as Count Danilo. Dorothy Kirsten is absolute magic as Anna (or depending on the translation, Sonia, Hanna or Zenia). She is at her best with "Vilia" and "I Love You So".
