Honoria (Honorina) Popovici (Soprano)




Probably she was born in Romania and received here education in Italy. Here real name was Onoria Popovich and she arrived in Italy approximately in 1902. The next year she sang at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice in Mascagni’s "Guglielmo Ratcliff’’. In 1904 she appeared at the Teatro Regio in Parma in Giordano’s "Siberia". I know that in 1907 she also performed at the Teatro San Carlo in Lisbon. In Italy she always sang only on the best opera stages.
