Best Opera Singers


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Nicolai Gedda
22Mario del Monaco

Perhaps the finest Italian dramatic tenor since Caruso - acting, dedication to the art, gorgeous voice - he had it all.

23Jessye Norman
24Jonathan Antoine
25Andrew Johnston

He is a great Opera singer, and I think he should be on this list because he is good, Andrew's voice is fantastic at opera singing, I think it is good that he sings in the choir.

26Jackie EvanchoJacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

Jackie Evancho is not an opera singer; she is the first to tell you that, and often corrects interviewers who call her one. Jackie has utmost respect for the years of study and practice needed to be an opera singer. She is a Classical Crossover singer, like Sarah Brightman or Josh Groban. Media and headline writers who often have no knowledge of the difference are responsible for any errors in labeling.
