About the listing

‘Our Marj’, the girl from Deans Marsh, Victoria, won the Sun Aria in Geelong in 1928 and conquered the operatic world in Europe and America, becoming the highest paid Prima Donna at the Paris Opera.

Struck down by polio at the very peak of her career, Marjorie fought back and resumed singing better than ever, although she was wheelchair bound for the remainder of her life.

Join us as we experience the life journey of a gregarious and inspiring woman with an insatiable appetite for life and an enormous passion for hats!!
