Victoria de los Angeles (1923 - 2005)

Victoria de los Angeles (originally Victoria de los Ángeles López García) was born into a musical family and was attending opera performances by the age of nine. She entered the Barcelona Conservatory when she was fifteen to study singing with Dolores Frau, completing the six-year course in only three and singing Mimì (La Bohème) in a student production in 1941.

Her first professional concert recital took place in 1944 and during January 1945 she made her professional operatic stage debut as the Countess (Le nozze di Figaro) at the Teatro del Liceu, Barcelona. In her second season at the Liceu, 1945–1946, she took on four of the roles in which she was to be most successful: Mimì, Massenet’s Manon, Marguerite (Faust) and Elisabeth (Tannhäuser).

At the 1947 Geneva International Singing Competition in 1947 de los Angeles won first prize and her international career quickly took off. The following year she was invited by the BBC to sing Salud in a broadcast of Falla’s La vida breve, as a result of which she signed an exclusive contract with EMI which lasted for thirty years and resulted in twenty-one complete opera recordings and twenty-five recital discs.
