Maria Passeri (Soprano) (Medigliano 1870 - Roma 1940)




She studied singing at Liceo Rossini in Bologna under Federico Dell'Ari. In 1886 she made her debut in Adriano in G. Donizetti’s ‘’Poliuto’’. Since 1906 she started to appear as mezzo-soprano. She had a successful career probably in the bigger opera theaters in the Italian province. She retired from the stage in 1922.
