Notes and Editorial Reviews

Daniza Ilitsch was born in Belgrade and studied at the Conservatory of her hometown and later in Berlin. In the role of Nedda in I Pagliacci, she made her debut in 1936 at the Berlin State Opera and appeared in guest performances at various stages, among them the Vienna State Opera (1938 and 1939), where she became a member of the ensemble in the last season during the War in 1943/44. Vienna remained the central point of her career during the first postwar years and she appeared at the Volksoper and at the Theater an der Wien, where opera was given then. Soon after the War, Ilitsch was approached by the Met, where she made her debut on March 12, 1947 as Desdemona in Otello. During her two seasons at the MET, 1946/47 and 1947/48 she was Read more heard as Leonara in Il Travatore, Amelia, Aida, Madam Butterfly and Gioconda. Her career was cut short by a dangerous illness, which forced her into premature retirement. She returned to Vienna, where she lived totally secluded and where she died on January 17, 1965 at the age of only 51. Read less
