Nielsen, Alice


Nielsen, Alice
(1871?-1943)
   Born in Nashville, Tennessee, the singing performer grew up in Kansas City and conquered the worlds of operetta, grand opera, and theatre. Victor Herbert composed operettas for her before she switched to opera in 1902, which led to her singing opposite Enrico Caruso. She was instrumental in bringing Joseph Urban to American scene design, and she worked closely with such illustrious theatre artists as David Belasco and Eleonora Duse.
