Victoria de los 聲geles
Birth: Nov. 1, 1923, Spain
Death: Jan. 15, 2005, Spain

Spanish Opera Singer. In 1944 she made her debut in a recital at the Palay de la Musica Catalana and several months later made her operatic debut as the Countess in Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro at the Gran Teatro del Liceo in Barcelona. In 1947 she won the Geneva International Singing Competition, which brought her to the attention of the BBC, for whom she was invited to sing the part of Salud in de Falla's La Vida breve. Her debut at the Paris Op廨a in 1949 was a triumph and the following year saw an equally successful debut at Covent Garden, as Mim in La Boh鋗e. In 1950 and 1951 she made her debuts at La Scala, Milan in the title role of Ariadne auf Naxos and as Marguerite in Gounod's Faust at The Metropolitan, New York, where she was especially admired throughout her operatic career. Her operatic repertoire also included Don Giovanni, Carmen, Il barbiere de Siviglia; Acis and Galatea, Pelleas et Melisande, Die Meistersinger, La Traviata, Simon Boccanegra and Dido and Aeneas. In 1961 she was invited by Wieland Wagner to open the Bayreuth Festival in a new production of Tannh酳ser. In 1991, she obtained the Arts Award of Foundation Pr璯cipe de Asturias.  (bio by: Jos L Bernab Tronchoni)
