Tonight, WFMT presents one of the great American voices of the past: coloratura soprano Mattiwilda Dobbs (1925-2015). She was born in Atlanta, and during her career broke color barriers on opera stages around the world, including La Scala, Covent Garden, and the Met. She was Studs Terkel’s guest in 1975.
