VAN ZANDT, Marie, singer, born in Texas, 8 October, 1861. Her mother, Mrs. Jennie Van Zandt, a daughter of Antonio Blitz, was herself a singer of note, and appeared in opera under the direction of Max Maretzek. Marie went with her mother in 1873 to London, where she studied at a convent school. While in that city she met with much encouragement from Adelina Patti, whose style she is said to have copied to a great extent. After studying also a short time with Francesco Lamperti in Milan, she made her debut in Turin, in 1879, as Zerlina, and appeared also in "La Sonnambula." She was engaged for Her Majesty's opera company in London in 1880, and in 1881 made her debut at the Opera Comique, Paris, remaining there for four seasons. She is a singer of much promise, and the possessor of a fine voice of great compass.
