It is a mistake to say that the fame of Jenny Lind rests solely upon her ability to sing. She was a woman who would have been adored if she had had the voice of a crow.
(PHINEAS T. BARNUM )
When she first appeared in London in 1847, Jenny Lind became, after Queen Victoria, the most famous and best loved woman in England. Even among those who never heard her sing she was a household name. She was able to write to a friend giving her London address: 'though I blush to say it, just put Jenny Lind and your letter will find me.'
In this account of her life, INGRID BERGMAN reads from Jenny Lind 's letters and JOAN Sutherland , in gramophone recordings, sings extracts from the operas in which she appeared during the ten years she was the greatest prima donna in the world. STEPHEN THORNE as Narrator
