Anna RUSSELL, 94: Opera parodist
Singer Anna RUSSELL got start in T.O.
Took cheeky shows around the globe
By Olivia WARD, Staff Reporter with files from Associated Press
The fat lady has sung.
After a dazzling, often zany career spanning six decades, singer and comedian Anna RUSSELL died Wednesday at 94 in the Australian seaside town of Bateman's Bay -- half a world away from her former home in Unionville, Ontario
"She went very peacefully," her adopted daughter, Dierdre PRUSSAK told reporters in Australia, where her mother had joined her for the last months of her life.
But peaceful is the last word to describe Canadian-born RUSSELL's lively career, which included sold-out performances in New York's Carnegie Hall, London's Royal Albert Hall, and with the Canadian Opera Company -- as well as global tours featuring her own saucy satirical songs and poetry.
"She was somebody who believed that serious music doesn't have to wear a frown," says Toronto Star critic William LITTLER.
A naturalized Canadian, RUSSELL gave farewell performances in her 70s while living in the Unionville retirement community of Heritage Village, adjacent to a street named for her, Anna Russell Way. Married and divorced twice, her second husband was the late Canadian artist Charles GOLDHAMMER.
"I fly a lot… and the airport is closer than it would be if I lived in Toronto," she once told the Star's columnist Lotta DEMPSEY, as she continued a head-spinning schedule of European and American engagements in her golden years.
Born in London, Ontario, of a Canadian mother and a British military officer father, RUSSELL grew up in England lamenting her less-than-perfect looks and voice -- the result of a smashed nose in a field hockey accident while at boarding school.
"Certain notes came out a yodel," she explained, telling of a career that veered from classical to comedic after the voice-altering event. But she went on to study at the elite Royal College of Music, and even snaffled a short and disastrous role in the Pietro Mascagni opera Cavalleria Rusticana.
Her one performance ended when she slipped onstage and crashed against the set, which collapsed. As the orchestra exploded with laughter, RUSSELL was packed off in disgrace. She then debuted as a folk singer on British Broadcasting Corporation radio, and later appeared on Canadian radio in a variety of shows.
She described some of her misadventures in her autobiographical books, The Power of Being a Positive Stinker, and I'm Not Making This Up, You Know.
The latter title was scooped from one of her most famous lines, taken from a breathless half-hour tour de force condensation of Richard Wagner's Ring of the Nibelungs, still used by serious students as a guide to the German composer's masterwork.
But it was in Toronto that RUSSELL got her start, when she returned to Canada with her mother after her father's death at the onset of World War 2.
"She was taken on by Sir Ernest MacMillan for his popular Christmas Box concerts with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra," says LITTLER. "He had a great sense of humour, and he saw her talent right away. She was a big hit."
Like vocal satirist Victor Borge, RUSSELL became a sought-after performer worldwide. Her recordings as well as performances were hailed as gems, and later as classics. In one, RUSSELL accompanied herself on the piano, offering lessons in "how to write your own Gilbert and Sullivan opera." But she also brought down the house during the Cold War with a mock-tragic Russian folk song featuring a chorus of "da, nyet, da, nyet."
In one of her best-known riffs, she explains Wagner's Das Rheingold, in which Erda tells the god Wotan, weiche, weiche -- "be careful. She then bears him eight daughters."
No musical nationality escaped what critics called "her laser-beam sense of humour."
RUSSELL's defiant floor-kicking flamenco dancer and her ultra-virginal British choral soprano delighted European audiences as much as those in Canada. A parody of Bizet's Carmen, with the feisty heroine groping for her deck of fortune-telling cards in her voluminous low-cut bodice, won her standing ovations.
Even RUSSELL's Ring Cycle performance won admiration from the notoriously combative Wagner family, which invited her to perform it at their musical shrine of Bayreuth, and included it in a video of the opera.
Best known for her vocal performances, RUSSELL jokingly described herself as "the Rip Van Winkle of Toronto -- a bit decrepit but not yet passed away."
"I still have one of the great voices of the decayed -- a roar rather than screech, in a comfy basso nonprofundo," she told the Star in 1977.
Her comic opera roles include the Duchess of Crackenthorp in the 1977 Canadian Opera Company production of Daughter of the Regiment, and the witch in Hansel and Gretel at the New York and San Francisco operas.
But RUSSELL also played a variety of instruments, including the piano and ukelele. "She once came on stage with a bagpipe, and took it apart as a lesson on how to play it," recalls LITTLER.
RUSSELL took to the stage, founding Grow Productions, which presented Victorian drama Lady Audley's Secret at the New York World's Fair in 1964, and played a leading role in Noël Coward's comedy Blithe Spirit. Catching a wave of popularity, she composed, wrote and performed her own comedy material for Columbia Records.
RUSSELL's cheeky style won over audiences when she was well into her 70s. Giving advice on how to be a successful singer, she quipped that although a glorious voice was important, "it helps to be an independently wealthy, politically motivated, back-stabbing bitch."
