Doris Lemon Suggest updates

English soprano.

Doris Lemon's main claim to fame must be the fact that at Glastonbury she created the role of Etain in The Immortal Hour, Rutland Boughton's phenomenally successful work that enjoyed a long London run in the twenties. She also sang with the Beecham company in The Golden Cockerel and Ivan the Terrible, as well as a range of parts with BNOC and Covent Garden Opera. Major roles included Cherubino, Nannetta, Nedda, Musetta, Mimì and Sophie.. She was married to the baritone William Michael.
