Met Opera Radio on SiriusXM honors Licia Albanese with a series of special broadcasts throughout the week. The legendary soprano, who died August 15 at the age of 105, sang more than 420 performances with the Met, including 72 of Puccini's Cio-Cio-San in Madama Butterfly, one of her most acclaimed portrayals and the role of her 1940 company debut. Her Met repertoire also included Violetta in La Traviata, Mimì in La Bohème, Micaela in Carmen, the title role of Tosca, and both Puccini's and Massenet's Manon—all of which are included in this broadcast tribute. Albanese made her official farewell appearance in the Met's last performance at the old opera house on Broadway and 39th Street in April 1966, and three few months later sang a final Mimì on tour in Newport, Rhode Island. She remained a lifelong supporter of the Met and until very recently was often seen in the audience on Opening Night.
