Dame Gwyneth’s large-scaled, powerful dramatic soprano voice, unusually robust vocal stamina, stage presence and acting abilities were widely admired.
One of her most noted achievements was her interpretation of Brünnhilde in the Bayreuth Ring in 1976, conducted by Pierre Boulez and staged by Patrice Chéreau.
Recently, she conducted Wagner Masterclasses at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and made a guest appearance in Quartet, a film by Dustin Hoffman. Currently, she is the President of the Wagner Society of Great Britain and Honorary Member of the Wagner Society of Northern California.
