Top Ten Greatest Female Opera Singers

The Contenders: Page 7XW

121Jane Powell

She has such a beautiful voice. And she is a friend of Elizabeth Taylor. If she had Elizabeth Taylor's face, she may be the greatest Hollywood soprano of all the time.

122Mady Mesple
123Eva Marton
124Leona Mitchell

Beautiful voice, beautiful woman.

125Brigitte Fassbaender

My greatest idol. I love her. She is funny, charismatic and captivating.

128Leonie Rysanek

Great Dramatic soprano who sang throughout the twentieth century to consistant acclaim worldwide. She and Birgit Nilsson besides being dear friends sang the dramatic repertoire with precision and ease. Rysanek's "style" put off many listeners but looking to the page of music she was performing (as with Callas) whould have erased any doubts as to her value as a performer. A viewing of her farewell night at the MET on You tube will solidify her place among the greatest of singers.

129Teresa Stratas

She is considered to be one of the greatest singing actresses in history

Her Violetta in the film La Traviata is outstanding and haunting.

130Maureen Louise Allen
131Juliette Pochin
132Kate Royal
133Moira Anderson
134Sondra Radvanovsky

How she hasn't been mentioned yet and the likes of Katherine Jenkins (who isn't an opera singer ) beats me. Beautiful tone and a marvellous actress - surely one of foremost sopranos particularly in tosca.
