Biography

She was an Opera singer. She first had training by the Soprano Elizabeth van Rompaey nee Coote.

She is probably best known as being the substitute Tosca in Covent Garden's famous 1965 revival of the 1964 Franco Zeffirelli production of the opera. When Maria Callas cancelled her appearances in three out of the four scheduled performances, Collier stepped in, to great acclaim.
