The soprano, Nadia Svilarova, was born in 1900. After her debut as Aida she had an important career in the years after 1920 singing the roles of the dramatic soprano in Italy. In 1924, she appeared in Verona singing Marguerite in the Damnation di Faust by Berlioz, in 1928 the role of Leonore in Trovatore with Jose Palet in Genoa.
