Interrupted Melody - The Story Of My Life

336 pages5 hours


This is the autobiography of Marjorie Florence Lawrence, an Australian soprano, noted for her interpretations of Richard Wagner's operas. She was the first soprano to perform the immolation scene in Götterdämmerung by riding her horse into the flames as Wagner had intended. In 1941, at the height of her career, Lawrence contracted polio and lost the use of her legs. Despite this she persevered and continued her career and became known world wide. A wonderful story of determination and overcoming difficulties of disability.
