Elena d'Angri

Born in Corfu, Elena D'Angri made her debut at the Opera House of Lucca. A contralto and mezzo-soprano, she was the earliest known Greek singer to perform internationally. From 1844-47, D'Angri appeared at La Scala in twelve different operas, such as Rossini's "Semirade" and Donizetti's "Linda di Chamounix." In 1846, D'Angri sang in Vienna and the Emperor called her "cantante di camera." In 1849 and 1850 she was the prima donna of the Italian Opera House in Paris. D'Angri first appeared in the United States at the Thalberg concerts in New York. The media praised her theatrical ability and precise vocal virtuosity. In 1860 the vocalist retired to Barcelona.
