“Lotte Lehmann is the last-and possibly the greatest-ornament of the golden age of singing. In each of her great operatic rôles-as the Marschallin, Leonora, Sieglinde, or the enchanting Rosalinde- she demonstrated unique ability to combine great singing with equally great acting. She was, in the fullest sense of the word, an ideal interpreter.”
