Zerr, Anna



Well-known dramatic singer; born at Baden-Baden. She received her musical education from Bordogni and first won success at Carlsruhe during the years 1839 to 1846. She then went to Vienna, where she sang until 1851, being at that time dismissed because she consented to sing at a concert given for the benefit of the Hungarian emigrants in London. After spending several years in both England and America, she retired from the stage in 1857. She had been married at Vienna, but was divorced in 1874. She died on her estate at Winterbach, near Oberkirch.
