Sigrid Onegin (1889 - 1943)

Onégin (real name Elisabeth Hoffmann) was born to a German mother and French father. Her parents divorced when she was young, whereupon she and her mother moved first to Metz and then to Wiesbaden. Although her talent as singer was apparent from an early age, she initially worked as a secretary to support her mother but later took singing lessons from Eugen Robert Weiss. She entered the Spangenberg Conservatory where she met her first husband, the composer and pianist Baron Eugen Borisowitsch Onégin (1870–1919), whom she was to marry in 1913. This person was in fact Agnes Elisabeth Overbeck, whose mother had studied singing and who coached Sigrid Onégin intensively. She also continued her vocal studies with Silvio di Ranieri until the outbreak of World War I, and in addition came under the influence of Lilli Lehmann and Margarete Siems. Although Onégin first sang under the name Lilly Hoffmann, she became known as Lilly Hoffmann- Onégin after her first marriage, later shortening this to Sigrid Onégin.
