Stalin’s Singing Spy: The Life and Exile of Nadezhda Plevitskaya

An online lecture by Dr. Pamela A. Jordan

In this program, Dr. Jordan will discuss the remarkable life of Nadezhda Plevitskaya (c. 1879-1940), a Russian peasant girl who achieved fame as one of Tsar Nicholas II’s favorite singers. She claimed throughout her career to be fundamentally apolitical, yet decades later in Europe, Plevitskaya was unmasked as one of Stalin’s secret agents along with her husband, former White Russian General Nicholai Skoblin. Their experiences in exile shed light on Stalin’s covert operations and the hardships Russian émigrés faced in interwar Europe, an era of great political and economic turmoil.
