Tiana Lemnitz (1897 - 1994)

Tiana Lemnitz, whose father was a military bandmaster and whose mother had a fine singing voice, was the youngest of ten children. Despite singing solos in school from the age of seven, she had no vocal training until she entered the music school at Metz in 1912. After World War I, in 1919 she enrolled at the Hoch Conservatory at Frankfurt-am-Main, where she was a pupil of Anton Kohmann; and made her operatic stage debut in 1921 at Heilbronn in the title role of Lortzing’s Undine.

Between 1922 and 1928 Lemnitz was a member of the opera company at Aachen, making her debut there as Woglinde / Das Rheingold. Here she sang several of the principal roles of her repertoire, such as Pamina / Die Zauberflöte, Donna Anna / Don Giovanni and Elisabeth / Tannhäuser; in addition she married the bass Ernst Gerstung, also a company member, and for a time sang under the name of Tiana Gerstung. From 1928 to 1934 she was with the Hanover Opera, where she sang in the first performance of Georg Vollerthun’s opera Der Freikorporal (1931). She substituted as Agathe / Der Freischütz at the Zoppot Festival in 1930 and from 1931 sang as a guest with the Dresden State Opera.
