Hanna Mara (Soprano)

Probably she made her debut in the 1900-1901 season at the Opera House of Olmütz (Olomouc). Then she sang in the 1901-04 seasons at the Opera House in Wroclaw. Then she had a guest performance career. Thus she took part in the 1904-05 season in the famous performance series of  R. Wagner’s ‘’Parsifal’’ by the Henry W. Savage Opera Company in USA and Canada. She married the tenor Willy Schüller with whom she appeared often. Other details about her career and her life were not to be brought in experience. Her repertoire included roles like Marguerite in ‘’Faust’’ of Gounod, Agathe in ‘’Freischütz’’ and roles in R. Wagner’s operas.
