Slovak singer Edita Gruberova died Monday at the age of 74 in Zurich. The sopranos have been on stage for over 50 years until 2019.
She was considered the “Queen of Colors”: Edita Gruberova. In 2019 she ended her career – before that she had been in the opera theater for more than 50 years. She was a Bavarian and Austrian chamber singer.
He grew up in simple circumstances
Gruberova was born in Bratislava in 1946. She was not in her infancy to receive plaudits on stage: she was raised in simple circumstances.
Her father drank and developed a close relationship with her mother. Her escape from harsh reality was often singing – at home, in the school choir, and in the children’s radio choir.
Breakthrough with Richard Strauss
From 1961 to 1968, Gruberova studied at the Bratislava Conservatory. After that, things went up sharply: she made her debut at the Vienna Opera in 1970 in Mozart’s “Magic Flute” as the Queen of the Night.
In 1974 she performed in this role for the first time at the Bavarian State Opera. Her international breakthrough came in 1976 with the role of Zerbenita in the film “Ariadne of Naxos” by Richard Strauss.
Now, the Sopranos has died at the age of 74, as reported by her family via Hilbert Artists Management in Munich.
