DVD Emmy Destinn - The Greatest Czech Soprano

DVD Emmy Destinn - cover

Emmy Destinn (1878–1930) was a prima donna assoluta whose talent was legendary throughout the world, a prominent member of the imperial court opera in Berlin, and a soloist with the Covent Garden Opera. Her career took her through the most prestigious venues of Europe, then across the ocean, where she became one of the most famous singers at the Metropolitan Opera in New York (1908–1916), partnered with another great operatic legend, the tenor Enrico Caruso, and courted by one of the most famous conductors Arturo Toscanini. Her musical and adventure-filled life continues to fascinate opera lovers even today.

This DVD, which contains a documentary film about Emmy Destinn, a selection of her recordings of world-famous arias, a biography with archival photographs and a photogallery of her life, will certainly interest admirers of this famous, unforgettable Czech singer. The DVD was prepared for Supraphon by BVA International in cooperation with the Municipal House in Prague.

The DVD is available to buy in the Supraphon e-shop.
