Biography

Irene Abendroth (1871-1932) was a Polish coloratura soprano singer. She was a pupil of Frau Wilczek. She was a member of the Vienna court opera in 1889, and she sang in Riga and Munich, and again in Vienna (1894-99). She was engaged from 1899 to 1908 at the Royal Opera in Dresden.

Her debut in March 1889 at "barely seventeen" as La sonnambula in Vienna, was critiqued as "extraordinary brilliancy of execution, in the best Italian manner, in smooth as well in staccato passages ...her voice is very thin" and she was given a distinctly favorable reception by the audience. Following this performance, the Imperial Opera put "the youthful bravura singer" on trial for one year.
