Marjorie Lawrence: The World At Her Feet
Marjorie Lawrence: The World At Her Feet
Join us on Sunday December 12 for a complimentary glass of wine on arrival, and the world premiere of Marjorie Lawrence: The World at Her Feet - the true story of a Victorian farm girl who became one of the world's greatest opera sopranos.
Majorie grew up in Winchelsea in country Victoria, Australia, dreaming of becoming an opera star like Dame Nellie Melba. In 1928 she went to Paris to study opera without knowing a word of French and having never heard of Richard Wagner.
In 1941, at the height her success, she was tragically cut down by polio and became completely paralysed. With the help of Australian nurse, Sister Kenny, Marjorie regained movement in her upper body and resumed her career in a wheelchair. In 1955, MGM made a movie of her life, "Interrupted Melody", starring Eleanor Parker and Glenn Ford, which won an Academy Award.
Remarkably, she became the greatest Wagnerian soprano of her era, gracing the opera theatres of urban and regional France, before being lured to the USA to sing at the Met. She became friends with President Roosevelt and performed"The Star-Spangled Banner" at his fourth inauguration. The Queen invited her to sing at Buckingham Palace and the French government awarded her a Legion of Honour for services to French music.
