21 Elisabeth Schwarzkopf
22 Carmen Monarcha

Our contemporary diva. Best actress since Callas and a voice to die for and charisma to spare.

Her voice is gorgous, her acting is emotional (in opera as in her own shows) - and then those big brown eyes! - but just listen to her and you'll vote for her right away...

Nice to see Carmen on this list ahead of say, Netrebko or Garanca. Truth is Carmen has greater charm and communicates really well with an audience.
Also her ability to drop from soprano into mezzo and contralto and
Occasionally deliver a good coloratura performance is commendable and her control between piano and forte is really good. She sings from the heart which is a great quality and acts well like Callas did and she is a good dancer too. Can play classical violin, cello and piano. All in all she is really rather special.

23 Anna Netrebko Anna Netrebko

She is the prima donna at the met these days.

24 Nicolai Gedda
25 Mario del Monaco

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

26 Jessye Norman
27 Andrew 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.

28 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline 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.

29 Fatma Said Fatma Said
30 Rolando Villazon
31 Birgit Nilsson

Read the details about this list! It says it's been voted on 0 times! So there must be not voted on by some errors on this poll! Nilsson was the voice.

32 Franco Corelli

One of the greatest but he has too much saliva in his mouth when he sings. I once read that a good tenor should have a lot of saliva in his mouth but Franco Corelli had too much.

33 Marilyn Horne
34 Beverly Sills
35 Montserrat Caballe
36 Renata Tebaldi
37 Renee Fleming

Beautiful pieces, beautiful voice! You sing such beautiful arias, and Schuberts ave Maria! Your Casta Diva sounds so beautiful!

38 Anna Moffo
39 Natalie Dessay
40 Elena Gruberova
