Personalities | Lucia Popp | Contemporary | Classical

Slovak-Austrian soprano

Popp was invited by Karajan to the Vienna State Opera shortly after making her debut in Bratislava in 1963 singing Queen of the Night (The Magic Flute), a role she later took to the Metropolitan Opera and recorded under Klemperer. Over two decades, she moved from light coloratura to lyric soprano, eventually taking on heavier dramatic roles, such as Eva (Wagner’s Meistersinger), and Strauss’s Arabella and Daphne. A distinguished Lieder and recital singer, she left an extensive discography.
