Black opera pioneer Camilla Williams dies at 92
Black opera pioneer Camilla Williams has died in Bloomington, Ind. She was 92.
Ms. Williams’ attorney, Eric Slotegraaf, said in a statement that the soprano died Sunday. Indiana University Jacobs School of Music spokesman Alain Barker said Ms. Williams died of complications from cancer.
The school said Ms. Williams became the first black female to appear with a major U.S. opera company when she debuted May 15, 1946, with the New York City Opera in the title role of Puccini’s “Madama Butterfly.”
She became the first black professor of voice at Indiana University in 1977 and retired in 1997.
