Personal Quote:

To be a Dramatic Soprano requires not so much the attributes of a singer, as those of a successful auctioneer or hog-caller. To blast your way through a Wagnerian orchestra, for instance, a beautiful tone is an absolute waste of time. You're much better off with the factory-whistle or buzz-saw type voice. With a good cutting edge. See more »

Trivia:

After spending many years in North America, Anna Russell relocated to New South Wales and spent the last years of her life with her "adopted daughter" and biographer Darlene Prussak. See more »

Trademark:

Her amazing 30-minute comedic distillation of Wagner's 20-hour opera cycle "The Ring"

Star Sign:

Capricorn
