Da drang aus meinem Stöhnen ein Laut so klagevoll

On this day in 1967 soprano Elisabeth Grümmer made her Metropolitan Opera debut on tour in Boston, as Elsa. 

Michael Steinberg in the Boston Globe:

Elisabeth Grümmer, better known in America from records than through actual performance, brought to the role of Elsa an appropriate radiance of person, a clear and bright soprano used with good reserves of power, a technical finesse and with intelligent sense of text, and exquisite musical art. It was a performance that would have been valuable and lovely under any circumstances; coming as it did, from a woman of 56, it was a remarkable one as well.
