Anna Russell

Anna Russell, née Anna Claudia Russell-Brown (December 27, 1911 – October 18, 2006) was an English–Canadian singer and comedian.

Russell gave many concerts in which she sang and played comic musical sketches on the piano. Among her best-known works are her concert performances and famous recordings of The Ring of the Nibelungs (An Analysis) – a humorous 22-minute synopsis of Richard Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen – and (on the same album) her parody How to Write Your Own Gilbert and Sullivan Opera.
