Bronhill, June
▪ 2006
June Gough  Australian soprano (b. June 26, 1929, Broken Hill, N.S.W., Australia—d. Jan. 25, 2005, Sydney, Australia), during the 1950s and '60s, was admired for her bright coloratura voice and clear diction in serious opera and stage musicals as well as in light opera. Her most successful role was as Hanna Glawari in Franz Lehár's operetta The Merry Widow. After winning contests in Australia, Bronhill (who took her stage name from her hometown) traveled to England in 1952 to continue her studies. In 1954 she began performing with the Sadler's Wells Opera, and throughout her career she moved back and forth between the U.K. and Australia. Bronhill was made OBE in 1976 and retired in 1993.
