Description

The life and times of Florence Foster Jenkins, the worst opera singer of all time. Madame Jenkins couldn't carry a tune in a bucket: despite that, in 1944 she played Carnegie Hall to a capacity audience and had celebrity fans by the score. Her infamous 1940s recordings are still highly-prized today. Florence Foster Jenkins' story is one of triumph in the face of adversity, of courage, conviction and of the belief that with dedication and commitment a true artist can achieve anything. With a major Hollywood movie about her life currently in production (starring Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant and Simon Helberg), the genius of Florence Foster Jenkins is about to be discovered by a whole new audience.show more
