Margreta Elkins (1930-2009) was an Australian mezzo-soprano. Primarily known for her performances at both the Royal Opera and Opera Australia, Elkins also performed in many of the other esteemed opera houses across the globe. Perhaps somewhat surprisingly, she turned down offers to perform at the Metropolitan Opera, Glyndebourne, and Bayreuth. After having her daughter, Elkins mostly sang in her native country of Australia, only occasionally leaving the country to perform. Elkins was made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) for service to opera in 1984. A Wagner specialist, Elkins has revealed that she considered her singing the role of Sieglinde in Die Walküre to be one of the highlights of her career. Two horizontal mailing folds. Toned. Corners and edges worn and creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
