Euphrosyne Parepa-Rosa (1836-1874) Born in Scotland, daughter of the soprano Elizabeth Seguin and the Baron Parepa de Boyescu, Euphrosyne Parepa-Rosa was a famous opera singer. In 1855 the vocalist made her debut in Malta as Amina in "La Sonnambula." She went on to sing in Italy, Spain, and Portugal. The singer was then engaged by the Royal Italian Opera at the Lyceum in London, where she debuted as Elvira in "I Puritani." Parepa-Rosa continued to sing at Covent Garden and Her Majesty's Theatre for several years. In 1867 she and her husband, Carl Rosa, formed the Parepa-Rose Grand English Opera Company, which toured England and the U.S. from 1867 to 1871. Parepa-Rosa returned to Covent Garden in 1872 as Donna Anna and Norma. Here the vocalist poses at the C. D. Fredricks studio wrapped in a huge mantilla.cdv size;
