Mariah Anderson’s triumphant breaking of the Met’s color barrier in 1955 is just one example of the impact of black women on operatic history – dating all the way back to soprano Sissierette Jones in the late 1800s. In Part 2, Tanisha Mitchell explores legendary black women who triumphed performing opera’s most coveted diva roles. This presentation will focus on stars like Mattiwilda Dobbs, Leontyne Price, Florence Quivar, Shirley Verrett, Camilla Williams, Martina Arroyo, and Jessye Norman.

This course has two sessions. To purchase all sessions of The Enduring Legacy of Black Singers in Opera, please click here.
