Malvina Major is a much-loved and respected international soprano, performing constantly on the world stage - often in the shadow of her better-known New Zealand compatriot, Kiri Te Kanawa. Her personal story is a dramatic one. As a young world-class soprano she turned her back on an international career in her twenties to marry a Taranaki dairy farmer, bring up their children and live on a farm. The opera world was agog. Over a decade later, she returned to singing and quickly built an international reputation - but her personal life was shattered when back on the farm her husband died. Now Malvina Major has rebuilt her career and is a huge favourite at home and a much sought-after performer overseas, singing in concerts and operas around the world.
