American soprano Patrice Munsel has died last Thursday at the age of 91. In 1943, aged 17, Munsel won an audition with the Metropolitan Opera in New York and became the youngest singer to make a debut at the Met. She performed on the Met stage more than 225 times. She is remembered, among other characters, for her Violetta, her Gilda and for her Adele in Johann Strauss’s Die Fledermaus.
