The Kirsten Flagstad museum
”I shall never forget the day when I made the leap from being a relatively unknown singer to becoming a world famous”

Kirsten Flagstad was born in Strandstuen, Hamar, on the 12th of July 1895. She grew up in a very musical family, and her talent was evident from an early age. In 1935 she made her debut at The Metropolitan Opera House in New York as ”Sieglinde” in Wagner’s opera ”Die Walküre”.

By the end of the matinee, Kirsten Flagstad had become famous.

A star was born!
