“Birgit Nilsson’s name and legacy will live on in the recorded history of Wagner’s music forever. Her performances on stage can only be rivalled by her magnificent recordings, to be cherished by fans and marvelled at by those of us who endeavour to keep the music of Wagner alive and relevant in the 21st century. Her ability to galvanise the listener with her special sound was unique, and we are all extremely fortunate to have this sound preserved for our continued enjoyment and edification.”
- Gramophone

“[As] Elektra, of which she became probably the best interpreter ever, and the put-upon Dyer’s Wife in Die Frau ohne Schatten […] her acting was intensely moving, and anyone who heard her in either is unlikely to forget the experience.” - The Guardian

“I've always tried to remember what my mother used to tell me: she said, ‘Stay close to the earth. Then when you fall down, it won't hurt so much.’” - Birgit Nilsson

“She always took her art seriously, but her personality was attractively down-to-earth.” - Humphrey Burton

“Birgit was unique. Her voice, the dedication of her artistry, her wonderfully wicked sense of humor and her loyal friendship were in a class by themselves.”
- James Levine
