Elisa Volpini by Bergamasco

Elisa Volpini by Bergamasco
Elisa Volpini, born Elisa Vilar y Jurado (1835-?); Spanish soprano.

At a young age she married the tenor Ambrosio Volpini and from then on she used the name Volpini as her stage name. In 1861 she and her husband made a tour to Mexico and Cuba as members of an opera company. They returned to Europe and she performed at the Théâtre-Italien Paris in Von Flotow's opera "Martha". There followed guest appearances in Barcelona, Lisbon, London, Vienna, in Germany and in Russia (Moscow and St. Petersburg). She made a tour through Spain and sang at Madrid, Sevilla, Cadiz and Malaga. After her husband died in 1872 she remarried the Spanish tenor Andrés Marín (1843-1896). Together they had resounding successes in Russia and during a guest appearance in St. Petersburg they were invited to sing at an Imperial Concert for Tsar Alexander II. About 1886 -after a final performance in Malaga- they ended their careers and her husband became Mayor of the city of Teruel.
