“There has been no greater desire in my life than that I feel for the National Theatre … For me, it has always been synonymous with my first love …”
Emmy Destinn (26 February 1878, Prague – 29 January 1930, České Budějovice), a woman endowed with multiple talent, unbridled by convention. A singer of Czech origin, global renown and repertoire, an international phenomenon of the early 20th century. An eccentric, emphatic, melancholy person in private, yet an ebullient, passionate diva on the stage. A set of 12 postcards presents a brief outline of the life and career of the femme fatale of the world of opera. The attached brochure is written in English.
