About Medea Mei-Figner
Medea Figner (1859–1952), mezzo-soprano, later soprano. Medea was Italian-born (her original surname was Mei) but she became competely Russianized after marrying Nikolay.
Medea Mei was born in Florence, Italy, on 4 March 1859. She studied there with Bianchi, Carozzi-Zucchi and Panofka. She sang the mezzo-soprano role in Verdi's Requiem at the young age of 16, and made her operatic debut soon afterwards, as Azucena in Il trovatore, at Sinaluga. She became well known throughout Italy, and also toured Spain, South America and Russia and visited London
