Dame Joan Hammond: Love and Music by Sara Hardy
English | Oct 1, 2009 | ISBN: 1741750830 | 320 Pages | PDF | 5 MB
A life worthy of a diva—a story of danger, love, sacrifice, and the fickleness of fate. Joan Hammond lived an extraordinary life, as dramatic and deeply moving as any of the operatic roles for which she became famous—Tosca, Mimi, Butterfly, Aida, Salome, Rusalka. No stranger to success, in her youth Joan was a golfing champion, excelling at most sports. But it was her voice that took her on a life-changing journey to Europe where the opulent pre-war theaters became her domain.
