The Contenders: Page 7
Contralto Marie-Nicole Lemieux became the first Canadian to win the Prix de la Reine Fabiola (1st Prize) and the Special Prize of the Lied Queen Elisabeth International Music Competition of Belgium. This prestigious award was known to the international community and allowed her to perform in recital and opera and concerts with major orchestras.
The greatest Spanish soprano of the twenties and thirties.
She had a modest international reputation. Many people have never heard of her. She was a good singer.V 1 Comment
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.
Beautiful voice, beautiful woman.
My greatest idol. I love her. She is funny, charismatic and captivating.

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.
She is considered to be one of the greatest singing actresses in history
Her Violetta in the film La Traviata is outstanding and haunting.
