FIRST FRIDAY BOOK CLUB | NELLIE: The life and loves of Nellie Melba by Robert Wainwright


FIRST FRIDAY BOOK CLUB | NELLIE: The life and loves of Nellie Melba by Robert Wainwright

Friday 4 Feb 2022, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM

Join The Friends for the first First Friday Book Club in 2022.

Dame Nellie Melba succeeded in becoming one of the world’s best known opera singers conquering stages from Britain to Europe to America. But her home base was Coldstream in the Yarra Valley, Victoria.

This combination of destinations also encompassed her personal life; Robert Wainwright takes us on a journey exploring not only her career but also her private life, her difficult marriage, the loss of contact with her son for ten years and her love affair with a European aristocrat.
