After her mother's death she sang in Pesth, and a few times in Court Opera in Vienna, and when her voice gained more power she was engaged as prima donna at Breslau, where she became very popular as singer and actress. She continued on the stage until 1825, assuming several roles in Elvira, Queen of Night, etc., with varying success. Her last appearance was in Berlin and after that no record of her can be found.
