     Lucia Popp

Born: Nov 12, 1939 in Uhorska, Czechoslovakia
Dead: Nov 16, 1993
Genre: Opera, Vocal Music
Country: Czechoslovakia/USA

Lucia Popp was an accomplished coloratura soprano in the early years of her career, but later she moved with great success into the lyric repertoire and, still later, into the lighter Strauss and Wagner operas. She had the ideal voice and personality for Viennese operetta, and was one of the best Rosalindes (Die Fledermaus) and Hanna Glawaris (The Merry Widow) of her time. She was also a celebrated recitalist and lieder singer, where her singing benefited from her charming stage presence. Her untimely death in 1993 (the same year that saw the early deaths of Arleen Auger and Tatiana Troyanos) cut short a major career.

Popp initially entered the Bratislava Academy to study drama. Anna Hrusovska-Prosenkova, a voice teacher at the Academy, happened to hear her singing during a performance of Moliere's Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme, and offered her voice lessons. She began her studies as a mezzo-soprano, but her voice quite suddenly developed a high upper register - so much so that her professional debut was as Mozart's Queen of the Night at the Bratislava Opera. That role was to remain a staple for many years of her early career.

Popp soon made debuts at the Theater an der Wien and the Vienna State Opera, where her first role was Barbarina in Le Nozze di Figaro. She had strong ties to the Vienna State Opera during her career, though she left their regular roster in 1967, and in 1979 she was named an Austrian Kammersangerin. She made her Covent Garden debut in 1966 as Oscar in Un Ballo in Maschera, and her Met debut in 1967 as the Queen of the Night.

During the 1970s, she left coloratura roles for lyric ones, particularly of Mozart, where she was an especially effective Pamina and Susanna, and in the 1980s she began to add even heavier roles, including Eva in Die Meistersinger and Strauss' Arabella (both in 1983) with similar success.
