Biography

Scottish-American singer who gained great operatic acclaim and retired at the height of her career.

She moved to the U.S. with her family when she was six. As a blossoming talent, she studied violin, piano and voice in Paris. As an understudy, when the lead singer became sick, Garden had the classical opportunity and became an overnight success with singing the role of "Louise," 4/13/1900. Garden had a long career association as a coloratura soprano with the Chicago Grand Opera, excelling in the roles of Violetta, Gounod's Juliet and Carmen.

She published her autobiography in 1951, "Mary Garden's Story." Her career began to diminish in the '30s and she faded from public view, dying in a geriatric ward on 1/03/1967, Aberdeen, Scotland.
