(10 March 1892 – 16 June 1990)
Dame Eva Turner was one of the greatest British dramatic sopranos ever!
One of the most successfully recorded U.K., opera stars of all time- star of the touring Carla Rosa Opera Company, Eva Turner (later to become Dame Eva Turner) was a household name in the 30's and 40s.
Her recorded rendition of Puccini's "In Questa Reggia" from Turandot released on "78" was an international best seller and brought her international fame and recognition.
Dame Eva lived well into her nineties and until her passing was an inspiration and encouragement to younger British singers.
Her time was an era where most opera companies toured as there were few established opera houses to perform in.
Eva Turner is one of the featured stars on our "Legends" product range.
