 Update me on new releases by Resnik

Regina Resnik

Born into a Jewish family that had emigrated to America from the Ukraine, Resnik knew that she wanted to be an opera singer from an early age. Although her parents were unable to pay for singing lessons, at thirteen she began studying free of charge with Rosalie Miller and continued to work with Miller throughout her later educational and early professional career. Academically precocious as well as disciplined, Resnik attended a special high school where she was able to study German and Italian in anticipation of her future career.

She then attended Hunter College, earning a degree in music education that would enable her to teach if she could not support herself as an opera singer. However she quickly established herself as a singer of note: during 1942 she made her concert debut at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, sang Lady Macbeth / Macbeth in a production mounted by the New Opera Company in New York, and undertook a tour of forty concerts. Her international debut came in 1943, with Leonore / Fidelio in Mexico City.
