Biography

Dorothea Franchi (1921-2003) had distinguished professional careers as both harpist and composer. She studied at the Royal College of Music where, in 1950, she won the Lionel Tertis Prize for her Viola Rhapsody. In 1953 she became pianist and musical director for the newly formed New Zealand Ballet Company under Paul Gnatt. Her ballet Do-Whack-a-Do was written for the company, and premiered in 1968. Twenty years later it was revived by the Royal New Zealand Ballet. Dorothea Franchi died 22 August 2003.
