Maria Ivanisi (Soprano)

Of Dalmatian origins she studied with Benedettg Lucignani and made her debut in 1907 at the Theater Minerva at Trieste in ‘’Lucrezia Borgia’’. The same year she sang at the Grande of Brescia in the mondial premiere of ‘’Nadeya’’ of  C. Rossi. She didn't get the hoped success and, thanks to the attractive aspect, she was engaged in the important company of operetta "Caramba." She returned to the opera in 1914 and in 1920 sang at the Teatro Bellini of Catania in the premiere of the new opera "Galatea" of  S. Savasta.
