Ina Hill Suggest updates


As well as enjoying a career as an operatic soprano, Ina Hill was one of a number of singers who followed the example of Fanny Moody and Charles Manners in attempting to popularise opera by touring the music halls in the years before the First World War.

She had a long career in opera.  Starting to tour with Carl Rosa in 1906, she was still visiting Scotland with the O'Mara company in 1935.  Leonora in Il trovatore is one role which she sang for a quarter of a century.
