Ms. Wilson, who appeared at the Met 26 times between 1954 and 1956, was praised by the critics for her silvery voice and assured stage presence. She made her debut with the company at 25, in the title role in Donizetti's "Lucia di Lammermoor" opposite the distinguished tenor Jan Peerce. After leaving the Met, Ms. Wilson turned to the musical theater. She made her Broadway debut in The Yearling, a short lived 1965 musical that also starred David Wayne, and later took over the role of Golde in the original Broadway production of Fiddler on the Roof. Her other Broadway credits include the 1979 musical I Remember Mama and Annie, in which she took over the role of Miss Hannigan.
