    Adelaide von Skilondz trained as a musician in St Petersburg, but singing gradually became her main focus. Ilja Repin’s painting is a role portrait, depicting her as Lakmé in Léo Delibe’s opera of the same name. After a career that included Moscow, Berlin and Helsinki, the singer came to Stockholm in 1915. Here, she performed at the Royal Opera and was also an important singing teacher. She coached many well-known voices of the mid-20th century.
