CRITIC REVIEW:

“Elen Dosia, (born Hélène Odette Zygomala, sometimes known as Ellen Dosia), was a French opera singer of Greek origin. Dosia was born in Constantinople. She became a soprano singer, and enjoyed her first major success at age 20 with the title part in TOSCA. She quickly became one of the most popular singers at Opéra Garnier and Opéra-Comique, where she performed from 1935 through 1952. She appeared often in Massenet operas, performing in MANON and THAÏS, and appearing at the 1942 Massenet Gala singing the title rôle in a tableaux of ESCLARMONDE. In 1947 Dosia débuted at the Metropolitan Opera, again playing Tosca. She retired from the stage in 1952, and then concentrated on her family life.”
