Beatrice Costa Marrugat (Mezzo-Soprano)

Probably she made her debut at the Teatro Pizarro in Valencia as Amneris in ‘’Aida’’. In 1909 she appeared in Pesaro, Venezia and Ostiglia. In the 1911-1912 season she sang at the Teatro Liceo in Barcelona in ‘’Les Huguenots’’, ‘’Carmen’’, and ‘’Tannhäuser’’. In 1912 she played a prominent part in the repertoire at the Coliseo Recrejos in Lisbon, singing in ‘’Andrea Chenier’’, ‘’Il Trovatore’’, and ‘’La Gioconda’’. In 1914 she performed again in Barcelona, but this time sang at the Teatro Tivoli  in ‘’Favorita’’. Probably she retired from the stage in 1917.
