Csillag Róza (Rózsa Csillag), 1832 - 1892), was a Hungarian female Jewish opera singer.
She was born in the Jewish community of Irsa (Alberti, now Albertirsa), Pest-Pilis-Solt-Kiskun vármegye, Hungary, and her father was Moritz Goldstein, a chazzan of Irsa. She attracted much attention in the chorus of the Hungarian National Theater at Budapest.
Trained by Professor Proch, she made her first appearance in 1858 as Fides in Meyerbeer's "Le Prophète", in the court opera-house of Vienna, where she delighted her audiences with her beautiful mezzo-soprano voice.
Until 1873 Csillag belonged to the cast of the Vienna Royal Opera-House, and was a general favorite.
