The catalogue to the exhibition “My Song For You – Marta Eggerth and Jan Kiepura Between Two Worlds”
Who doesn’t know them: Marta Eggerth and Jan Kiepura, the dream couple in film, opera and operetta? Their voices inspired the masses and their unique timbre still moves today.
The exhibition catalogue contains detailed descriptions of the life story of the singer couple with a special focus on their exile situation in the USA. But it also points out the fates of all those artists who had worked artistically with Marta Eggerth and Jan Kiepura and were persecuted, expelled or murdered by the Nazis.
Included are also listings of all of the couple’s film and stage appearances, short biographies of the persecuted and murdered colleagues, as well as numerous illustrations of unpublished documents located in the archive of the Exilarte Center of the mdw, which is the new home of Marta Eggerth’s and Jan Kiepura’s estate.
