One of the 20th-century's most mesmerizing operatic figures - still adored by fans who never heard her live - the soprano Claudia Muzio made her Metropolitan Opera (where her father had been a stage manager) debut in 1916 as Tosca and was a star with the company for the next six seasons, having a remarkable impact even after the arrival of Rosa Ponselle.PHO-07944$400
