I found this photo that Hildegard Behrens had signed for me about 15 years ago, when she was in Athens singing Leonore in a wonderful production of Fidelio and thought I should share it. It's a bit worn out but it's unique.

R.I.P. Hildegard Behrens (9 February 1937 – 18 August 2009)

ps. Behrens had appeared at the Athens Megaron on various occasions, as Elektra in May 1992, as Leonore in March 1995, as Cassandra in Berlioz's Les Troyens in June 1994, and in various recitals (1995, 1996, 2001), but also at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus in a all-Wagner recital back in 1994.

May she rest's in peace. I never had the chance to listen to her live as I am to young for it but thank God we have her recordings.
