Emilie Herzog (1859-1923); Swiss soprano.

In 1880 she made her debut at the "Hofoper von München" as Page Urbain in Meyerbeer's "Les Huguenots". The following nine years she remained at Munich and she achieved great successes as Blondchen in "Die Entführung aus dem Serail", Papagena in "Die Zauberflöte", Marzelline in "Fidelio", Ännchen in "Der Freischütz", Micaela in "Carmen and Anna Reich in "Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor". In 1888 she created the role of Drolla in “Die Feen”; an opera that Wagner wrote in his youth (1833) at the age of 20 years. Since 1883 she sang several times at the Bayreuth Festival. In 1889 she was enaged at the "Berliner Hofoper". There her career reached its apogee; she was admired not only as a Mozart interpreter (Königin der Nacht/Die Zauberflöte and Kostanze/Die Entführung aus dem Serail) but also as Frau Fluth in "Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor", Marie in "La fille du régiment" and Gilda in "Rigoletto". She made guest appearances at London, Paris, Vienna, Brussels and Moscow. In the season 1899-1900 she was engaged at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. She was also considered an outstanding concert and oratorio soloist. Since 1903 she was a teacher at the "Hochschule für Musik" in Berlin, but she remained at the Berliner Hofoper where she had her final performance in 1910 (as Waldvogel in "Siegfried"). From 1910 until 1922 she worked as a vocal teacher at the "Konservatorium von Zürich" in her native Switzerland.

On the photo she is seen as Frau Dot in Goldmark's "Heimchen am Herd".
