Gabrielle Krauss (1842-1906); Austrian soprano.
She was a pupil of Mathilde Marchesi. In 1859 -at the age of 17- she made her debut as Mathilde in Rossini's “William Tell” at the Vienna Hofoper. She continued her career in Vienna until 1867. After guest appearances in Italy and Russia she settled in Paris and performed at the “Grand Opera” and at the “Théâtre-Italien”. She created the title-role at the première of Mermet’s “Jeanne d’Arc” (1876), the role of Pauline in Gounod’s “Polyeucte” (1878), Hermosa in Gounod’s “Le tribut de Zamora” (1881), Catherine d’Aragon in Saint-Saëns “Henri VIII” (1883) and Dolores in Paladilhe’s “Patrie !” (1886). She was also a celebrated concert singer.
