Birgit Nilsson made her operatic debut in 1946 as Agathe in Der Freischütz with only 3 days notice. Nilsson made her breakthrough performance as Lady Macbeth in 1947.
She attained international stardom after a performance as Isolde in Wagner's Tristan und Isolde at the Metropolitan Opera in New York on December in 1959. From her point of view her single biggest event in her life was when she was asked to perform at the opening of the 370th season at La Scala as Turandot in 1958.
Birgit Nilsson is probably best known for her portrayals of Turandot in Turandot, Brünnhilde in Richard Wagner's Der Ring Des Nibelungen, Isolde and Elektra.
