Wysor, Elizabeth (Contralto) * ? (?). Debüt 1935. A remarkable voice of depth and sonority combined with extensive training in New York, Munich and Salzburg with such famous singers as Paul Bender and Margarete Matzenauer opened the way for a full career in opera and concert recitals including appearances in many European capitals — she took the part of Brangäne to Kirsten Flagstad's Isolde in "Tristan und Isolde" — and she taught for twenty years as artist-in-residence at Northwestern University's School of Music, Chicago, retiring as Professor Emeritus in 1973, and was also visiting professor for three years at the University of Virginia. Her other interests include ancient Greek history and culture, book collecting and writing. A book of her poems was recently published.
