Before ‘La Stupenda’ came ‘The Voice’. Dame Nellie Melba was Australia’s first singing sensation, and one of the most famous Australians of her day – idolised in the theatre, mobbed on the street and known by name in even the most remote corners of the country. Helpmann Award-nominated soprano Lorina Gore, pays tribute to her compatriot in a program of arias by Gounod, Verdi, Massenet and Thomas, with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra under Marko Letonja.
