Anneliese Rothenberger made her Metropolitan début as Zdenka in 1960. "She sang regularly at Munich and Vienna from the mid-1950s. Her large repertory included Mozart’s Ilia, Susanna and Pamina, Berg’s Lulu, Adele (Die Fledermaus), and the title role of Heinrich Sutermeister’s Madame Bovary, which she created in Zürich (1967). Rothenberger had unusual acting ability and a light, well-schooled voice. She made several complete recordings of both opera and, especially, operetta, and wrote an autobiography, Melodie meines Lebens (Munich, 1972)." Harold Rosenthal in Grove Music Online. Item #24061
