Museums and Exhibitions 

Elisabeth Schwarzkopf Museum, Hohenems

Since August 2011, a museum at Villa Rosenthal in Hohenems is dedicated to Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, one of the greatest singers of the 20th century. The same builing houses the offices of the Schubertiade GmbH which owns major parts of the personal estate of the soprano and her husband, legendary British record producer Walter Legge.

The museum features numerous original documents, letters and photographs not only by Schwarzkopf’s own hand, but also by other famous artists and contemporaries such as Benjamin Britten, Maria Callas, Edwin Fischer, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Kirsten Flagstad, Wilhelm Furtwängler, Maria Ivogün, Herbert von Karajan, Carlos Kleiber, Lotte Lehmann, Vivian Leigh, Yehudi Menuhin, Anna Moffo, Sviatoslav Richter, Arturo Toscanini, Wieland Wagner and Paula Wessely.

A selection of opera and concert costumes, programme brochures, drawings, notes, and scores used by Schwarzkopf for performances and recording sessions, as well as private photos which have never been on display before complement the exhibition and call to memory the most important steps in the singer's unprecedented career.
