    Oda Slobodskaya, the greatest Russian Soprano of the early and mid 20th century, was born in Vilno and studied in the St Petersburg Conservatoire. Her teacher was the formidable Natalia Iretskaya, a pupil of Pauline Viardot Garcia.She was chosen by Fyodor Chaliapin to be Elisabetta in Don Carlos, opposite his King Philip, when he brought his opera Company to Paris and London in the 1920s.She later settled in England and enjoyed a major international career, singing at La Scala and Covent Garden as well as touring South America. In later years she was famous, and much loved, as a recitalist and definitive interpreter of Russian song. She was a fine teacher, at both the Royal College of Music and the Guildhall School, and continued to give lecture recitals up to the last year of her life.
