Meta Seinemeyer

After a traditional education Seinemeyer, whose father was a detective inspector in the Berlin police force, studied singing at the Stern Conservatory and possibly also at the Berlin Music High School. Her vocal teachers were Nikolaus Rothmühl and Ernst Grenzebach; her original intention intention was to become a concert singer. However, she made her operatic stage debut in 1918 in the title role of Offenbach’s Die schöne Helena (La Belle Hélène) at Berlin’s Charlottenburg Opera (later to become the Städtische Oper and then the Deutsche Oper).

Seinemeyer remained with the Charlottenburg Opera until 1924 and (it is believed) began to make gramophone records as early as 1919. She toured the USA during the early part of 1923 with Sol Hurok’s German Opera Company: her co-singers included Ottilie Metzger, Jacques Urlus, Alexander Kipnis and Friedrich Schorr and the company’s conductors were Leo Blech and Eduard Mörike. Her roles with this company, which played the major cities in the east of the USA, included Elisabeth / Tannhäuser and Senta / Der fliegende Höllander, for both of which she received her best reviews, Eva / Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, Elsa / Lohengrin and Agathe / Der Freischütz.
