Joan Hammond lived an extraordinary life - a life as dramatic and moving as any of the operatic roles for which she became world famous.No stranger to success, in her youth Joan excelled at most sports, and was a golfing champion. But it was her peerless voice that would change her life forever - a voice made for the opulent pre-war theatres of Europe that would later became her home away home. Ever passionate, always generous, and never forgetting her Australian heritage, her exhilarating performances introduced millions of people around the world to the sounds of opera and classical music.This thoroughly researched, superbly written, and richly illustrated volume is an unrivalled journey through Dame Joan Hammond's life in all its glamour and complexity.
