Willmann, Madame Tribolet



Wife of Maximilian Willmann. She was an opera singer and appeared first in Vienna, where she met with great success and was engaged there for a number of years. In Hamburg in 1801 she delighted her audiences in the Theatre an der Wien, at Vienna, two years later, and then in 1804 in Munich she was enthusiastically received. Next she joined the Opera in Cassel and then retired and sang only in concerts for a time. Her last concert was given in Munich in 1812. Madame Willmann was the daughter of Tribolet, a professor of French in the University at Bonn. She appeared only in concert until after her marriage and then traveled with her husband and his daughter Magdalena until her debut as an opera singer in 1795. She was on her way to Vienna, where her husband was seriously ill, when she died; his death took place shortly after hers.
