English Opera Singer. A soprano, she had a significant career in late 19th century England. Born Julia Ehrenberg (on Warwick Street, hence her professional name), she was raised with a love of music, and studied piano, making her professional debut at 12 at the Hanover Rooms. After voice training with Sainton Dolby and Maurice Garcia, she joined the Carl Rosa Opera Company in 1876, making her debut as Zerlina in Mozart's "Don Giovanni". She took the role of Arline in Balfe's "The Bohemian Girl", and Leonore in Beethoven's "Fidelio", and was well-received as an oratorio singer. She then joined the D'Oyly Carte Comedy Opera Company, and created Constance in Gilbert and Sulivan's "The Sorcerer" in 1877. She was also to premiere as Dora Leslie in Cecil and Cellier's "Dora's Dream" and as Lady Viola in Albery and Cellier's "The Spectre Knight." She took a turn as "Carmen" with Carl Rosa in 1878, and both played London and toured in a number of pieces, many of them seldom performed today. After retirement in 1896, Warwick was a professor at the Guildhall School of Music, before opening her own school in 1902.
