Link: Marta Eggerth at 100

Marta Eggerth, the wonderful singer who was a big star of the European screen in the 1930s, made films with Judy Garland, and headlined “The Merry Widow” on Broadway with her husband, Jan Kiepura, will turn 100 on Tuesday. I use this as an excuse to profile Eggerth in Thursday’s Washington Post.

Above: Marta Eggerth over six decades: in the film “Die Czardasfürstin,” 1934 [LINK FIXED], and on stage in New York at age 82, 1994.

Anne Midgette came to the Washington Post in 2008, when she consolidated her various cultural interests under the single title of chief classical music critic. She blogs at The Classical Beat.
