KIRI TE KANAWA - CHRISTMAS WITH KIRI * 1968 LONDON MADE IN HOLLAND * NEW/SEALED (Cut-Out Photo #1) New Zealand born soprano Kiri Te Kanawa is of Maori descent. Her earliest vocal studies were with Sister Maria Leo in Auckland. She won the Melbourne Sun contest and went to London where she studied with Vera Rozsa at the London Opera Center. It was there that she first appeared on stage as the second lady in Die Zauberflöte of Mozart. In 1969, she sang Elena in Rossini's La donna del lago at the Camden Festival. In 1970, she made her debut at the Royal Opera, Covent Garden as Xenia in Boris Godunov and the following year she captured the public attention as the Countess in Le nozze di Figaro, a role for which she became world famous. Her American debut came that summer at the Santa Fe Opera, again as the Countess, as she was for her San Francisco Opera debut in 1972. She was soon singing at all of the major opera houses of Europe adding roles in Don Giovanni, Così fan tutte, and Die Zauberflöte to her Mozart repertoire. Her Metropolitan Opera debut in 1974 as Desdemona in Otello came on only a few hours notice when she substituted for the ailing Teresa Stratas. Her other Verdi roles include Amelia in Simon Boccanegra and Violetta in La Traviata. Her primary roles in the French repertoire were Micaëla in Carmen and Marguerite in Faust. The Houston Grand Opera was the site of her first Arabella in 1977 and since then she has made a specialty of Strauss' aristocratic ladies including the Marschallin in Der Rosenkavalier and the Countess in Capriccio. She was able to display her comic side with performances of Johann Strauss' Die Fledermaus. Her appearances in the operas of Puccini have been infrequent but she was a lovely Mimì. Many critics found her Tosca lacking the dramatic edge the role requires, but she always sang the role beautifully. Her appearances at the festivals at Salzburg and Glyndebourne are always highlights of the season.
