It is with great sadness that we announce that Mrs. Antonie Denygrová, a long-time soloist of the National Theatre Opera, passed away on 21 March 2019. She was permanently engaged by the National Theatre from 1973 to 1991.
During her rich career, she appeared on the stage of the leading Czech scene in many roles including e.g. Janáček’s Káťa Kabanová, Liza in the Queen of Spades, the Qeenin Novák’s Karlštejn or Sophie in Cikker’s The Game of Love and Death. Prague spectators could enjoy her performances also in the roles the Foreign Princess in Rusalka, Senta in the Flying Dutchman or Vendulka, Krasava or Ludmila from operas by Smetana. After the separation of Prague’s opera theatres, she remained a member of the State Opera in Prague, where she sung Ghita in Der Zwerg, Janáček’s Kostelnička, Marja in Krása’s Verlobung im Traum, Herodias in Salome by Strauss and a number of other parts.
Our most sincere sympathy to the bereaved.
