168 Antonietta Stella

I remember hearing her live at the Met in 1960 at the age of 12, in Madame Butterfly, it was the first opera of over 50, that I attended at the met. Richard Tucker was Pinkerton, and Madame Stella, Butterfly. I was totally impressed by the performance, at that young age, and became involved in opera as a lifetime pursuit. I still have a 33rpm recording of La Boheme, live from the Met, with her in the role of Mimi, of which I listened to dozens of times, as I was studying and learning and memorizing that opera.

Romanian soprano... an angel singing... From Marzelline to Serpetta and Helena - the best of the best!

171 Maria Ewing

She has a fierce temperament, a lot of energy, but a bit mumbling voice. Her singing is not precise enough.

Voice - Beautiful. Acting - Bravura.
