ByEdward P. Flaspoehler, Jr.

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Need to finance your singing career? Become a spy! That's what one English soprano did to fund her career in opera. This book tells you how she did it! Written in the form of a memoir, this is the story of a young woman who abandons the comforts of home and family to pursue a career as a singer in a strange new country. Set in London, Vienna and Washington, The Cold War Soprano is the story of English soprano Sheila Jones and her husband, American baritone Werner Harms, two talented singers who worked as under-cover agents for the US Central Intelligence Agency to earn the money they needed to support their musical ambitions. Not just another backstage biography, the Cold War Soprano is a provocative and absorbing tale of opera and espionage in Cold War Europe in the 1960s.
