Olive Fremstad
née Anna Olivia Rundquist
b. 3-14-1871; Stockholm, Sweden (raised in Minneapolis)
d. 4-21-1951; New York

Olive Fremstad, who sang in the mezzo-soprano and soprano ranges, appeared at the Metropolitan Opera in New York from 1903 until 1914, specializing in Wagnerian roles (‘Venus’ in Tannhäuser, ‘Kundry’ in Parsifal, ‘Sieglinde’, ‘Isolde’ and ‘Elsa’ in Lohengrin).

Fremstad studied her roles thoroughly - she visited the NYC morgue to practice how much staggering would be necessary to convey the weight of John the Baptist's head on a platter.

FYI ~ The Met was on tour in April of 1906 - Fremstad and Enrico Caruso performed Carmen at the San Francisco Grand Opera House on the evening of the 17th. They were all jolted out of bed on the morning of the 18th ... the San Francisco earthquake. All of the Met's artists survived but all sets and costumes were lost.
