Hilde Konetzni (1905 - 1980)

The younger sister of soprano Anny Konetzni, Hilde was initially more interested in swimming than singing. Having studied at the Vienna Conservatory with Rudolf Nilius and made her debut at Chemnitz in 1929 as Sieglinde / Die Walküre (singing opposite her sister as Brünnhilde), she continued her studies in Prague with Ludmilla Prohaska-Neumann. Konetzni sang with the opera in Gablonz in northern Bohemia (now Jablonec nad Nisou, Czech Republic) for the 1931–1932 season and from 1932 to 1935 with the German Theatre in Prague. Here she caused a sensation with her portrayals of Leonora / Il trovatore and Agathe / Der Freischütz, and sang the title role in the German-language premiere of Janáček’s Kát’a Kabanová in 1936. During the same year she made her debut (as Elisabeth / Tannhäuser) at the Vienna State Opera, where she was based for the rest of her professional career.
