The mezzo-soprano Margareta Kenney was born (it is thought) in 1918. Little is known about her early life except that she was brought up in Argentina where she studied before making her début as one of the Valkyries in Die Walküre at the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires. She came to Vienna in 1950 and remained with the State Opera for the next decade. Her rôles there included Eboli, Herodias, Amneris, Brangäne and Azucena. In 1954 she sang in Florence and Perugia, before singing Lady Macbeth in Rome in 1956. She also appeared in Naples and Lisbon. Her other recordings include D'Albert's Tiefland and Stravinsky's Les Noces.
