June Bronhill Live in Australia December 1961
Australian June Bronhill was an internationally acclaimed coloratura soprano opera singer, performer and actress. Born in Broken Hill as June Mary Gough, June used the stage name “Bronhill” as a contraction of the name of the town where she was born, in gratitude for the financial help help given by the people of the town towards her operatic career.
After performing abroad for several years and establishing an impressive international career, June Bronhill was invited to perform on the popular Australian television event The BP Super Show in December 1961.
Hosted by musician and entertainer Horrie Dargie, June Bronhill delivers a delightful set of songs including Richard Rogers Spring is Here, Dvorks Songs My Mother Taught Me and the exquisite Aria from La Traviata.
Featuring a lively ballet/dance performance by the GTV9 Ballet, also included is Arthur Young’s seasonal tune Christmas in the Bush featuring Horrie Dargie on harmonica and June Bronhill on vocals.
Please note, although Basil Rathbone is listed in the opening credits, the footage with him no longer exists.
