The Austrian soprano, Laurence Dutoit, was a regular performer at the Vienna State Opera from the late 1950ís to the early 1970ís. She also appeared on a number of occasions at the Vienna Singakademie. In 1958 she performed in Vienna in Werner Egkís Irische Legende, a performance conducted by the composer. The following year she sang at the Vienna Singakademie in George Frideric Handelís Solomon under Beechamís direction and also sang in the same composerís Israel in Egypt in a performance conducted by Hermann Scherchen.

At the 1962 Salzburg Festival Laurence Dutoit appeared in Herbert von Karajanís production of Il Trovatore, singing the role of Ines.
