Top Ten Greatest Female Opera Singers
The Contenders: Page 6
One of the most overlooked and gorgeous voices of her time.
Actually I'm astonished she is so low on this list. She is beyond any doubt one of the best singers of the last thirty years of the 20th century.
A robust voice, rough singing. Not enough delicacy and expression, no sense for psyshology of the characters and no talent for nuances. But still she is bettter than average.
Beautiful voice, beautiful woman.
Clearly, one of the best Butterfly's around. Her performance is so amazing and her voice has such emotion!V 1 Comment
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.V 1 Comment
She sung some opera, but she was an ethnic music singer. She had the range of more than 4 octraves, excellent pitch control and a mighty voice. They did not accept her at the Metropolitan, because they concluded she would out-sing their most priced stars.
Judging by voice quality alove, she belongs to to top 10.
Given another 10 years and she'll be among the greatest ever
A lovely singer and beautiful actress, admired since her beginning in amateur operatics
She is the complete singing actress - charming and beautiful in voice and personality as well as looks. Her repertoire encompassed Monteverdi, Mozart, Beethoven, Handel, Rossini, Donizetti, Verdi, Gounod, Massenet, Bizet, Wagner, Salinnen, Poulenc, Puccini, Henze and that doesn't even begin to touch the lighter music and musical shows.
No one tops the list for stage presence, expression, beauty and a lovely voice in combination.
Great gutsy singer, not always perfect but always exciting. She dared and frequently conquered... My heart!
