“Amy Shuard, one of the leading English lyric and later dramatic sopranos of the postwar era, was a pupil of Dame Eva Turner, and followed in the teacher's steps, notably, lin the roles of Turandot and Brünnhilde. She was also noted for her performances in Janacek's JENUFA.

At Covent Garden, Miss Shuard made her mark in December, 1958, when she became the first British soprano since Dame Eva to sing Turandot. Then followed her Wagnerian roles, and in 1964 she became the first British singer to undertake the complete role of Brünnhilde at Covent Garden, and she sang the part in later stagings of the RING cycle.

Miss Shuard made appearances in Vienna, Buenos Aires, San Francisco and Milan in other roles.”
