Italian-born soprano and future First Lady of Argentina Regina Pacini sings Tosca (1906)

A pupil of Mathilde Marchesi, Pacini made her debut in 1888 (aged 17) as Amina in La Sonnambula. She soon embarked on a successful international career, appearing in various European and South American countries. In 1907, Pacini married Marcelo Torcuato de Alvear, an Argentinian politician who eventually became President of his country in 1922. As First Lady of Argentina (1922-1928), Pacini dedicated herself to cultural efforts; in 1938, she founded the Casa del Teatro in Buenos Aires, a retirement home for actors similar to Milan’s Casa Verdi.
