Clementine Schuch-Proska by Teich Hanfstaengl
Clementine Schuch-Proska, born Clementina Procházka (1850-1932); Hungarian soprano.
She was a pupil of the famous singing teacher Mathilde Marchesi. In 1873 she made her debut as Norina in “Don Pasquale” at the “Hofoper” at Dresden, where she was engaged her entire career. In 1875 she married the conductor (and later general music director) Ernst von Schuch (1846-1914) who was also engaged at Dresden. Under his leadership the “Hofoper” reached an unprecedented high artistic level. His wife performed in rôles like Queen of the Night (Der Zauberflöte), Zerline (Don Giovanni), Ännchen (Der Freischütz), Marguerite (Faust), Juliette (Romeo and Julliette), Violetta (La Traviata) and Eva (Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg). She made guest appearances at Vienna, Moscow, St. Petersburg, London, Berlin and Zürich. In 1894 she retired from the stage with the same performance as her debut: Norina in “Don Pasquale”. Two daughters of her also became famous opera and concert singers: Liesel von Schuch (1891-1990) and Käthe von Schuch (1885-?). Her granddaughter Clementine von Schuch (born 1921) was also an opera singer.
