Lotte Lenya


Austrian singer, diseuse, and actress, long based in the United States. In the German-speaking and classical music world she is best remembered for her performances of the songs of her husband, Kurt Weill. In 1956, she won a Tony Award for her role as Jenny in Marc Blitzstein's English version of The Threepenny Opera, the only time an off-Broadway performance has been so honoured. In English-language cinema, she was nominated for an Academy Award and Golden Globe as Best Supporting Actress for her role as a jaded aristocrat in The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone (1961). She also played the murderous and sadistic Rosa Klebb in the 1963 James Bond movie From Russia with Love. In 1966, Lenya originated the role of Fräulein Schneider in the original Broadway cast of the musical Cabaret.

During and between her five marriages, Lotte Lenya had numerous lovers, including Max Ernst, Paul Green and actress Tilly Losch. Lenya died of cancer on 27 November 1981 at age 83 in New York City.
