Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Sigrid Arnoldson had a voice of remarkable beauty and warmth, a fine coloratura technique and a range of three octaves. To these was added a musical intelligence with which not many singers have been blessed. Thus she was well suited to an operatic repertoire which included Susanna, Cherubino, Zerlina, and Papagena. Taught by her father, Carl Oskar Arnoldson and Fritz Arlberg, respectively the most significant Swedish tenor and baritone of their time. Her stage debut was as Rosina in The Barber of Seville in 1885 at Prague. The part was also the vehicle for her first and very successful appearances at the Imperial Opera in Moscow in 1886 and at London's Drury Lane Theatre in 1887. The critics felt she was the natural successor to Jenny Lind and thus "the new Swedish Nightingale." Her Metropolitan debut was in 1893. By 1910 she had become a member of the Academy of Music in Sweden. In 1911 she retired from singing and taught in Vienna until 1938 and then in Stockholm where she died in 1943.
