Opera Singer. A dramatic soprano, she sang leading roles in many of Europe's principal venues. The child of an operatic family, she was raised within the artistic milieu and received private training prior to her 1873 professional bow at Nice as Leonora from Verdi's "La Forza del Destino". Erminia had the dual role of Elena/Margherita for the October 4, 1875, Bologna world premiere of the revised version of Arrigo Boito's "Mefistofele" and over the next two decades was heard in Rome, Paris, Madrid, and elsewhere with travels to Buenos Aires in 1881 and St. Petersburg in 1891. For the most part confining herself to the heavier repertoire her roles included the title leads of Donizetti's "Lucrezia Borgia" and Verdi's "Aida", Marguerite in Meyerbeer's "L'Huguenots" and Selika from the same composer's "L'Africaine", Santuzza of Pietro Mascagni's "Cavalleria Rusticana", Marguerite in Charles Gounod's "Faust", Paolina of Donizetti's "Poliuto" and Verdi's 'other' Leonora in "Il Trovatore". While still young and in good voice Erminia retired in 1893 and lived out her days in Bologna. Her mother was mezzo Adelaide Borghi-Mamo. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
