The Vienna State Opera has announced the death of Austrian soprano Wilma Lipp, especially celebrated for her Mozart roles: "Die Wiener Staatsoper trauert um die große österreichische Sopranistin Wilma Lipp, Kammersängerin und Ehrenmitglied der Wiener Staatsoper, die am gestrigen Samstag, 26. Jänner 2019 im Alter von 93 Jahren in ihrem Haus in Inning am Ammersee verstorben ist."

A Classical Source appreciation will follow in due course. Wilma Lipp was born in Vienna on 26 April 1925 and she died on 26 January 2019.
