Liza Barska-Fisher

 

Born in 1888 in Odessa, Ukraine.

Her parents were enlightened and well-to-do.

She learned in a gymnasium.

She trained her voice through a Ukrainian singing teacher and was recommended as a chorus singer to a Ukrainian troupe, where she then performed in Odessa.

Soon thereafter she went into Kaminski's troupe, where she toured with them singing solos, and she soon switched over to small roles.

In the span of her stage career, she played in all the old and modern repertoires. For a range of years she acted together with Ester Rukhl Kaminska, afterwards in "Vikt" and lately in Vilna.

Specialty: Character roles.
