Opera Singer. A dramatic soprano, she started her career at Germany's Dresden State Opera in 1936 and made her international debut at the Vienna State Opera in 1944. She was known as a fine actress and performer of great intensity, regarded by many as the last master soprano singer of the German language. Her voice was both brilliant and clear over a range of three octaves. Goltz was a headliner of the Vienna State Opera ensemble from 1950 until she retired in 1970, performing in Salzburg, Milan, Rome, Brussels, London, Buenos Aires and at the New York Metropolitan Opera. She died of natural causes. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
