Yvonne Minton (b1938)

Yvonne Minton commenced her vocal studies with Marjorie Walker in Sydney and at eighteen won the Elsa Stralia Scholarship to study at the Sydney Conservatorium. Minton also won numerous singing competitions, notably the Australian National Eisteddfod in Canberra, which is open to singers from all over Australia and New Zealand, and also sang frequently on both radio and television for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and with the Sydney and Queensland Symphony Orchestras.

In 1961 Minton left Australia for England, settling in London where she studied with Henry Cummings and Joan Cross. After winning the Kathleen Ferrier Prize for the best contralto at the International Vocalist Competition at ’s-Hertogenbosch in Holland, she made her operatic stage debut in 1964 as Lucretia in Britten’s The Rape of Lucretia at the City Literary Institute in London, in the same year creating the part of Maggie Dempster in Nicholas Maw’s opera One Man Show. During 1965 she appeared in a BBC Television production of Gianni Schicchi with Tito Gobbi, as well as in the Glyndebourne production of Dido and Aeneas especially mounted for broadcast by the BBC.
