Lucia Popp (Lucia Poppova) (November 12, 1939 - November 16, 1993) was a popular operatic soprano from Slovakia. "Miss, you're phenomenal!" cried the great Elisabeth Schwarzkopf upon hearing her for the first time. Lucia Popp made her debut in 1963 in Bratislava, and then appeared at the State Opera of Vienna, Austria, where she remained until her death. Popp began with magnificent portrayals of coloratura soprano roles, and as her career progressed, moved into the light-lyric, and then lyric, repertoire. Every movement gained her notable success.
