Jenny Lind, born Johanna Maria Lind in Stockholm, Sweden, 6 October 1820, was an operatic and oratorio soprano who made her debut in Stockholm in 1838. Her final opera appearance was in 1849. In 1850 she toured the United States with P. T. Barnum and in 1852 married her accompaniest, Otto Goldschmidt. Lind and her husband lived in Dresden, Germany and from 1856 on, in England. She died 2 November 1887.

Jenny Lind (1820-1887) was the most renowned soprano of her era. After triumphs in her native Sweden, France, Germany, and England, in 1850-1852 she toured the United States, performing in 93 cities. Her trip was organized by P.T. Barnum, and it became a milestone in the history of music in America, not only for the purity and agility of her voice, but also for the audacity (and success) of Barnum's marketing.

From the guide to the The Jenny Lind Collection, 1847-1851, (Irving S. Gilmore Music Library, Yale University)

Coloratura soprano Jenny Lind, the Swedish nightingale, began her music career as an opera singer in Europe. She embarked on a wildly successful concert tour of the United States, under the aegis of P.T. Barnum. After her marriage, she lived in Europe, appearing on stage infrequently, performing concerts for charitable causes.
