Fanny Anitua (1887-1968)

Mexican contralto. She studied in Mexico City and in Rome where she made her first appearance in 1909 as Gluck’s Orpheus. Her rich flexible voice was ideal for Cenerentola and other contralto roles. She spent time touring the US with the Western Metropolitan Company, and made her final appearance in 1937 at Buenos Aires as Mistress Quickly, and then taught in Mexico City.
