The coloratura soprano Eva Lehoczky, a member of the Budapest State Opera for many years, died this week when the two-storey house where she lived went up in flames. Eva was 91.

Starting out as a percussionist, she had her first singing engagement at Chemnitz in East Germany, moving home to Szeged and later Budapest.
