Dr Venera Rogozea
Birth: Apr. 1, 1913
Bucharest
Bucuresti Municipality, Romania
Death: Jul. 17, 2012
Bucharest
Bucuresti Municipality, Romania

Opera Singer. A mezzo soprano, she is remembered for her long tenure with the Romanian National Opera. Born to a distinguished academic family, she studied for a medical career in Vienna and in Germany and qualified as a physician but after discovering her vocal talent transferred to the Bucharest Conservatory and never practiced medicine. For many years a leading member of the Bucharest aristocracy, her time on stage saw her specialize in a few roles with her signature piece being Amneris, the frustrated and jealous Egyptian Princess of Giuseppe Verdi's "Aida". In addition to Amneris her other noted portrayals included Verdi's two fortune tellers, Azucena from "Il Trovatore" and Ulrica of "Un Ballo in Maschera" as well as Santuzza in Pietro Mascagni's "Cavalleria Rusticana". She lived out her days in her home city, was honored by the National Opera at a performance of "Aida" on her 99th. birthday, and died from the effects of advanced age. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
