International fame or humility?

Life between extremes.
Eva Lind, famous austrian soprano

As part of the MCI Alumni & Friends lecture series the Entrepreneurial School® welcomed the famous soprano Eva Lind. When she was only 19 years old she had a sensational debut as Queen of the Night in Mozart’s “The Magic Flute” at the Vienna State Opera and as Lucia in “Lucia di Lammermoor” in Basel. Since then she has had a meteoric international career and graced the stages of large operas and concert halls around the world.

In a conversation with Rector Andreas Altmann, Eva Lind, who was awarded the Tyrolean Order of Merit, spoke about her career, the secret of her success and her love for Tyrol. The singer is particularly proud of her most recent success, namely the creation of the “Eva Lind Music Academy”. With this academy, she is devoting herself to the advancement of young national and international talents. In answer to a question from the audience about how to become an international star, Eva Lind stated that the most important things you need to be successful, apart from talent and luck, are commitment and persistence – these are also the qualities she would advise students to focus on, if they want to reach their life goals.

The evening ended with an animated discussion between the audience and the charismatic singer. A particular highlight of the event was her invitation for the audience to come to her next concert at the “Schwazer Silbersaal” (a venue center in Schwaz).
