Edita Gruberova (b1946)

Although born in Bratislava, Edita Gruberová was the child of a Hungarian mother and German father. She studied music at the Bratislava Academy, where her singing teacher was Mária Medvecká, and continued her studies at the Bratislava Academy of Performing Arts. While there she became a member of the Lúčnica folk ensemble, which performed occasionally at the Slovak National Theatre in Bratislava. Having made her operatic stage debut in 1968 with the Bratislava Opera as Rosina / Il barbiere di Siviglia, Gruberová won the International Singing Competition of Toulouse, after which she was a member of the opera ensemble of the Tajovský Theatre in Banská Bystrica, Slovakia between 1968 and 1970.

During the summer of 1969 Mária Medvecká arranged for Gruberová to audition at the Vienna State Opera, which resulted in her engagement to sing the Queen of the Night / Die Zauberflöte in Vienna in 1970, when she achieved immediate recognition as a coloratura soprano of note. She left Slovakia, then under Communist rule, for the West, and initially was based in Vienna, becoming a member of the Vienna State Opera in 1972. There she built up an impressive repertoire of major bel canto roles in the operas of Bellini, Donizetti and Rossini, and firmly established herself as a major star with her portrayal of Zerbinetta / Ariadne auf Naxos in 1976.
