Description: Johanna Maria Lind (Madame Goldschmidt)(October 6, 1820 - November 2, 1887), better known as Jenny Lind, was a Swedish opera singer, often known as the 'Swedish Nightingale'.

One of the most highly regarded singers of the 19th century, she is known for her performances in soprano roles in Sweden and across Europe, and for an extraordinarily popular concert tour of America beginning in 1850.

She was a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music from 1840.

Lind became famous after her performance in Der Freischtz in Sweden in 1838. After this, she was in great demand throughout Sweden and the rest of Europe for a decade.

After three acclaimed seasons in London, she was invited to America by P. T. Barnum, where she gave 93 large-scale concerts. She earned 250,000 dollars from these concerts. She returned to Europe, where she became a philanthropist, and, for some years, a professor of singing at the Royal College of Music.
