a noted coloratura soprano, came from Kiev, Russia, where she was singing at the Municipal Opera, to become a member of New York's Manhattan Opera Company. She was born at Varsoria, of Polish parentage, and began the study of music at the age of five. When she was fifteen years old she was a pianist of high order and began playing in concerts. She studied in Paris under Madame Marchesi for two years and then, at the age of seventeen, made her debut at Milan, afterwards appearing at the prominent theaters and opera houses throughout Europe and South America. Her repertoire consists of such operas as Lucia, Somnambula, Puritani, L'Elisir, La Boheme, Barbiere, Rigoletto, Hamlet, etc.
