Frieda Brauer

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Frieda Brauer , married Frieda Richert-Brauer , ( January 28, 1873 in Stuttgart - after 1904) was a German opera singer ( soprano ).


Brauer, the daughter of a furniture manufacturer, first learned to sing for pleasure only, and he was Nikolaus Rothmühl , who took over her singing lessons. However, the further she progressed in her studies, the stronger her voice developed, the more satisfied the master became, who eventually led her to devote herself to the stage.

In 1899 Brauer found her first engagement in Zurich, where she made her debut as "Elsa" at Lohengrin . She was a highly dramatic singer of taste, worked tirelessly on her further training and had already received much encouraging applause with roles such as Valentine, Senta etc.

She stayed in Zurich until 1902, after which she was engaged at the City Theater of Königsberg (East Prussia) until 1904. She then lived as a guest in Berlin, later in Swinoujscie. She then worked for a long time as a guest at the German Theater in Prague.

After 1904 she called herself Frieda Richert-Brauer , probably after a wedding.

Her voice was recorded in 1904 and has been preserved. She also seems to have been a hotel owner.
