Erika Koth (1927 - 1989)

The coloratura soprano Erika Köth (1927–1989) was born in Darmstadt where she began musical studies with Elsa Blank in 1942, and after a break resumed them in 1945. She made her stage début as Philine in Mignon in Kaiserslautern in 1948, and later sang in Karlsruhe between 1950 and 1953 and in the latter year appeared at the Munich State Opera and the Vienna State Opera. It was with this company that she first appeared at Covent Garden in 1953. She appeared regularly at the Salzburg Festival (1955–64) as the Queen of the Night and Konstanze in addition to Bayreuth (1965–68) as the Woodbird. She also made guest appearances in Milan and Paris in addition to the Berlin State Opera in 1961. Her rôles included Susanna, Zerlina, Sophie, Lucia, Gilda, Stravinsky’s Le Rossignol and The Rake’s Progress. Her voice was a smallish one of considerable agility.
