Not exactly Wagnerian but from a friend of the WSNC

Documentary film maker, Donald Collup, has given two talks for the Wagner Society. One featured his film on the career Astrid Varnay and the other was a feature presentation of Three Bayreuth Divas. Collup created another film entitled Florence Foster Jenkins, A World of Her Own.

Foster Jenkins is now the subject of a soon to be released, Stephen Frears “bio pic” featuring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant. Here is a WSJ Magazine article which describes “FFJ” as she is known by fans and the new film. Collup was interviewed for the article.
