Alice Eversman, Dramatic Opera Soprano
a3Genealogy congratulates Ms. Mary Ellen Eversman for her newly released, 2013, account of Alice Eversman, Dramatic Opera Soprano. The Eversman story uses documents and photos, uncovered in family records and an extensive Library of Congress collection, to carry the reader from Germany in 1808 to Illinois.
What makes this immigrant story intriguing? The story of how the 25 year old American soprano, Alice Eversman, entered the opera scene at a time when European- particularly Italian - Prima Donnas dominated the stage is told. Alice Everman's operatic career includds top international opera companies, and renown voice trainers. Her family, friends and even White House invites, from U.S. President Taft to Nixon, are shared in her story. Mary Ellen, author, gives us a look into the close-knit family, their successes and challenges.
Researchers at a3Genealogy are honored to have contributed to this ancestral story. And, we thank Mary Ellen Eversman for giving us the opportunity to learning of one or American's leading dramatic opera sopranos.
