Special Encore Presentation: 'The Gifted Life of Opera Singer Susan Chilcott' (1963 - 2003)
June 2, 2010
Hosted by David Gibbons
“In Discussion” talks with David Sigall. Susan Chilcott is survived by her husband David Sigall, who was also her agent for many years. David recalls in this moving program her love for the work she so adored and for life. Most of all her only son Hugh, now with Susan's great friend Iain Burnside who is his legal guardian. Susan Chilcott was an English soprano, considered one of the best of her generation. While achieving worldwide fame among the aficionados of opera and classical music in general, she failed to become a household name, something which she would have undoubtedly have done but for her death from breast cancer at the age of 40. She had success in many of the major opera houses around the world and was particularly known for her interpretations of Britten and Janácek.
