Nellie Melba (1861 - 1931)


Born Helen Porter Mitchell in Richmond, near Melbourne, on 19 May 1861, Nellie was the eldest child of immigrant David Mitchell, a self-employed builder and amateur bass singer who had come from Scotland during the 1851 gold rush. Encouraged by her mother to study piano, organ and singing, during her teens, at Melbourne Presbyterian Ladies’ College, Nellie received her first serious vocal training from Ellen Christian, an English-born contralto and former pupil of the baritone Manuel García Jr., the inventor of the laryngoscope. On leaving college in 1880, she continued her studies in Melbourne with Pietro Cecchi, an Italian tenor from California who had toured Australia in Lyster’s company.
