THE COLD WAR SOPRANO
Wagner Society of Dallas members fondly remember Sheila Jones Harms,
who was an active member of the organization, and who presented many
interesting programs and recitals over the years.
Now, WSD member Ed Flaspoehler has completed his biography of
Sheila, called The Cold War Soprano: Memoirs of a Singer-Spy.
If you are interested in opera and fine singing, Sheila's
biography will surely be of interest to you. Not only will you get
an inside glimpse of what it takes to become an opera singer, and
learn about the world of opera in Post- WWII Vienna, but, because
Sheila and her husband Werner, were also CIA agents, you will get a
look at the Cold War from a personal point of view.
You can get a copy of Ed's book on the internet at
