THERESE MALTEN, Soprano, * 21 June 1855 Insterburg (Ostpreußen), † 02 January 1930 Neuzschieren bei Dresden;

29 Aug

A well-known German dramatic soprano.

She was born at Insterburg, East Prussia, studied with Gustav Engel in Berlin, and made her début in 1873 in Dresden as Pamina in The Magic Flute. In 1882 Richard Wagner selected her as the original Kundry in Parsifal. From that time on till her retirement in 1903, she remained a member of the Dresden Opera, with frequent leaves of absence for appearances in the principal European opera houses such as the Semperoper [contradiction: this is the same as the Dresden Opera]

Her repertory included many the great mainstream operas, but she was pre-eminent as an interpreter of Wagner’s heroines.
