Adelina Patti Suggest updates

Born Madrid, 19 February 1843.

Died Craig-y-Nos Castle, Wales, 27 September 1919.

Spanish-born Italian soprano.

Adelina Patti enjoyed a stupendous international career as one of the leading sopranos of her day. She does not appear to have sung in fully-staged opera in Scotland. She did, however, tour on a number of occasions in concert parties. The price charged for tickets to these events, with no apparent difficulty in selling, ranged from the cheapest benches at 5/- to the most comfortable stalls at a Guinea each. Most concert promoters at the time reserved 5/- as the price demanded for the expensive seats.
