Opera singer and presenter Caroline Kaart passed away yesterday at the age of 88. Map became known through programs such as A song with Caroline and the radio program Classic with Caroline.
In recent years, Map has stayed in the Rosa Spier Huis, a living and working community in Laren for older artists. “She was a very sympathetic woman and she was very witty”, says colleague Francis van Broekhuizen. “But she was also very unhappy.”
Two years ago, Card said in a documentary about the Rosa Spier House that she felt lonely. “I am an old single person, with a very small dog and that’s all”, she said at the time.
