Biography/History

Jenifer Eddy is one of Australia's most experienced artists' agents and a former international soprano. She was born in Melbourne, and appeared regularly with the Australian symphony orchestras as well as in Opera Australia’s inaugural season in 1956, prior to departing for England in 1958. From 1959/1963 she was a resident principal soprano at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, and continued to appear in successive seasons as a guest artist. She also appeared with English National Opera, Scottish Opera, Welsh National Opera, in Germany, France, Italy and Portugal and at most of the major festivals in Great Britain. She returned to Australia in 1975 and became a pioneer in the field of artists’ management in this country, launching Jenifer Eddy Artists’ Management in April of that year. She is also a founder member of the Australasian Classical Music Managers Association and the first international member of the International Artist Managers’ Association. Further programs featuring Eddy are located in separate PROMPT files under the companies she appeared with, including the Royal Opera, Welsh national Opera, Scottish Opera, and Opera Australia.
