Spanning 36 years and nearly 400 performances, the career of the legendary Canadian soprano Teresa Stratas was one of the most memorable and exciting in Met history. After appearing in the 1959 National Council Auditions Grand Finals Concert, Stratas made her Met debut in October of that year singing Poussette in Manon. She would go on to perform 41 roles with the company, from Mozart’s Cherubino (Le Nozze di Figaro), Despina (Così fan tutte), and Zerlina (Don Giovanni) to some of Puccini’s most impassioned heroines, like Cio-Cio-San (Madama Butterfly) and Mimì (La Bohème). She also delighted audiences with performances in masterpieces of the 20th century, as when she took on the role of the Composer in Strauss’s Ariadne auf Naxos.
