Not this one?

" In 1907 Tetrazzini made a sensational debut as Violetta in La traviata at Covent Garden in London, where she was completely unknown, and from that point on she was an international operatic superstar, commanding the highest fees and selling out opera houses and concert halls wherever she performed.

Apparently her acting was poor, even by the standard of opera singers!
However, her high notes were thrilling and her coloratura staggering.

Her elder sister Eva was the first Desdemona in the USA.
