Honoria Popovici (Soprano)

Probably she was born in Romania and received here education in Italy. Here real name was Onoria Popovich and she arrived in Italy approximately in 1902. In 1903 she sang at the Teatro La Fenice in  Venice in Mascagni’s "Guglielmo Ratcliff". Two years later she appeared at the Teatro Regio in Parma in "Siberia" of Giordano. I know that in 1907 she also performed at the Teatro San Carlo in Lisbon. In Italy she alsways sang only on the best opera stages.
