Luísa Todi (1753 – 1833) was a popular and successful Portuguese mezzo-soprano opera singer.
Luisa Todi was praised for her vocal abilities, her clear diction, her linguistic skills, her professionalism, her talent as an actress, and the emotion and sensibility with which she infused her roles — qualities that make her seem an extremely modern performer. These are the same qualities that have ensured that Luísa Todi is still remembered across the centuries.
By 1823, following her earlier vision problems, she had become completely blind. She died on October 1, 1833 after suffering a stroke the previous July. She died in complete poverty.
Before her death, Luísa Todi saw her talent immortalized in Antoine Reicha’s book Traité de melodie, where she is described as “the Singer of all Centuries”.
