#1212 A Visit with Beverly Sills

Thursday, March 19, 1992

Beverly Sills joins George Jellinek in the studio for an interview. They talk about her landmark career as a soprano, her favorite roles and personal triumphs, and her tenure at the New York City Opera. She also talks about her current career out of the public eye, serving on various boards of large companies and charitable causes. Throughout the interview, we hear recordings of her in Handel's Giulio Cesare, Massenet's Manon with Nicolai Gedda, Donizetti's Anna Bolena, and the finale of The Ballad of Baby Doe.
