“The arrival of Columbus in the West was a less significant event,”

  • London Athenaeum report of Jenny Lind’s arrival in America

 

In September of 1850 Phineas Taylor Barnum was responsible for presenting Jenny Lind to America, most recognizably shown in the most recent film ‘The Greatest Showman’. Jenny Lind, popularly known as the Swedish Nightingale, and her tour of major American cities was electrifying.

“On more than one occasion it generated a mob response, with trampled crowds and broken windows in concert halls. … The public’s desire to hear Jenny Lind was itself promoted by a tour of a different order: the circulation of prosthetic tokens – Jenny Lind hats, coats, frocks, boats, boots, and articles that documented the soprano’s life and career. The public’s frenetic response, called Lindomania, signaled a desire to possess and to be possessed by an ineffable presence and authority that the Lind voice seemed to promise and that the hearing of the voice seemed to authenticate.” (Blackmer)

 

This book ‘Jenny Lind in America’ by Rosenberg records Lind’s tour through America and Cuba. The book includes Lind’s tour through the cities:

  • New York
  • Boston
  • Washington
  • Charleston
  • Havana
  • New Orleans
  • Mississippi
  • Memphis
  • Louis
  • Nashville
