Dame Kiri Janette Te Kanawa (born 6 March 1944; New Zealand) made a guest appearance in episode 3 series four of Downton Abbey as Dame Nellie Melba.[1]

Kanawa is considered one of the best sopranos in Britain and the United States and has had a highly successful international opera career since 1968.

Behind the scenesEdit

Gareth Neame has said that Kanawa's performance reduced the cast and crew to tears, saying, "It was quite a special day."[1]
