In 1888, Geogina Stirling took to the stages of Europe as Marie Tourlinguet, a stage name taken from the French spelling of Twillingate.
From the paths of Twillingate to the streets of Paris, from church basements to the opera houses of Europe, Marie Tourlinguet sang to the world in a career which spanned two continents and reached into the next century. (courtesy the Twillingate Museum)
The original post included text from the Canadian Encyclopedia that is not entirely accurate. I was corrected by the author of the book you can find at the following link, “The Heart’s Obsession” by Tonia Evans Cianciulli.
This is a recent and complete reflection on Georgina Sterling’s life.
As a side note… this is how I recorded this for the purposes of letting you hear my work in progress.
I have also started piecing together some moving images for projection.
