Top Ten Greatest Female Opera Singers

The Contenders: Page 8

141 Shirley Jones V 1 Comment
142 Leonie 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.

143 Teresa 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.
