Margit László (Soprano)

Born: 1931 - Cluj, Transilvania, Hungary

The Hungarian soprano, Margit László, was educated in Cluj, where she studied piano, and later in Budapest, where she studied singing privately with Jánosné Koranek and Jenő Sipos.

Margit László made her debut in 1955 at the Budapest National Opera in the role of Gilda in Rigoletto. In the following years she appeared there in a number of roles, singing very successfully in the soubrette and lyrical vocal category. She was highly esteemed mainly as a Mozart interpreter. So she sang roles such as Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro, Pamina in Die Zauberflöte, Eurydice in Orpheus by Gluck, Rosina in Barber of Seville, Mimi in La Bohème, Micaela in Carmen, Norina in Don Pasquale, Zerlina in Don Giovanni, and many others. She also performed as a concert singer. She remained a member of the Budapest National Opera until 1986. She was one of the most requested soprano of her time.

Margit László was a teacher in Saint Stephan Conservatory, at the Liszt Academy in Budapest and in the Hungarian State Operahouse. She was awarded with several prizes, such as the Ferenc Liszt Prize (1961), Artist of Merit (1973) and Outstanding Artist Award (1981).
