Amazing that Nellie Melba was 65 when she said farewell to Covent Garden with such a youthful sounding Mimì. Forget the surface noise – Melba’s technique triumphs throughout. Royal Opera House Covent Garden. Jane Bourguignan (mezzo-soprano), Dame Nellie Melba (soprano). Piangea cantando "Willow Song". The farewell performance of Dame Nellie Melba, world-famous prima donna of her day, on the stage of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, where she had sung hundreds of times over an unprecedented span of 40 years, remains a justly famous occasion, of which recorded extracts have been reissued previously. What makes the present release unique?

Dame Nellie Melba GBE (born Helen Porter Mitchell; 19 May 1861 – 23 February 1931) was an Australian operatic soprano. She became one of the most famous singers of the late Victorian era and the early 20th century, and was the first Australian to achieve international recognition as a classical musician. She took the pseudonym "Melba" from Melbourne, her home town.

Prompted by Melba, Brownlee left Australia to study with French baritone Dinh Gilly in Paris. He made his 1926 stage debut at the Théâtre-Lyrique in Paris as Nilakantha in Les pêcheurs de perles, actually a bass role. That same year, he was invited to Covent Garden to take part in Melba's farewell to the stage, singing Marcello to her Mimì in the third and fourth acts of La bohème. Despite the attention focused on the leading lady, Brownlee's performance was heard with pleasure.
