Klavdia Tugarinova (Mezzo-Soprano) (Perm 1877 - ? 1940)

Born in 1877, she was a soloist of the Mariinsky Theatre, St Petersburg, from 1902 to 1917, and was distinguished as a Wagner singer as well as an interpreter of roles in the Russian repertoire like Olga in ''Eugene Onegin'', the Countess in ''The Queen of Spades'' and, with Chaliapin as Boris Godunov, Fedor, a role in which she was heard in Paris in 1909, when Diaghilev brought the troupe of the Imperial Opera to the Theatre Sarah Bernhardt. She spent the years following her retirement as a teacher of singing, first in Petrograd and later in Stalingrad. She died after 1940.
