Emma Zaccaria (Mezzo-Soprano) (Milan 1883 - ?)



Probably she made her debut in 1905 at the Teatro Chiabrera of Savona in ''Andrea Chenier''. Already in 1907 she was in New York, where at Manhattan Opera House she sang the role of Azucena in ''Trovatore''. In USA she also made guest appearance in Philadelphia. Zaccaria sang also in Montevideo (1910) and London (1912). She retired from the stage in 1921.
