10 Greatest Sopranos of All Timecedricfollyman

Amira was born with a naturally rich and powerful voice, and through her passion for opera arias at such a young age, she learned to control and use it to deliver a passionate but controlled performance where to use her own words she - 'gets lost' in a song - and take the listener with her in a very emotional but contained manner. At 13 her voice has only begun to mature but already hints of the possibilities of a fully mature exceptionally beautiful voice and her maturing capability to use it promises only further unforgettable performances. Her progress to date is incredible.
Amira has a naturally gifted voice which, together with careful training, is developing into a fine operatic facility. She produces a lovely quality of tone throughout her range, with just sufficient vibrato to colour her notes. So many sopranos use far too much vibrato, in my opinion. Amira is still only 13, but if her voice continues to mature as she grows into adulthood, she could become one of the finest sopranos of all time. I am following her progress with keen interest.
Such a beautiful voice, I never get tired of listening to her. And an engaging personality too. Her first love is still opera music, and she is a hard worker at learning. With a love of putting drama and emotion into her singing, she has great potential (now just 13) for performing in full operas eventually, as well as singing in concerts - which she already does with great success.
This young lady wowed the world when only nine years old. She has since gathered a very solid fan base which is expanding at an incredible rate. All this while she is now only thirteen and wisely insists on enjoying her childhood! All I can say is "We ain't seen nothing yet"...the best is still to come...!V 11 Comments
Absolutely beautiful voice and beautiful person.
Her voice is better than the clarinet...
If the main thing is beauty of sound and purity of voice, this is THE goddess of singing... She possessed the most beautiful voice ever.
How ridiculous. This lady has to be in the top 3. The other two might be Sutherland and Janowitz. Kiri and Ileana are up there also. Popp is special though - and a real beauty.
Clearest and cleanest voice of them all!
I cannot see past Lucia Popp as the very best ever. Mozart would have loved herV 3 Comments
I've heard them all. Sarah leaves them all for dead. She has sold more records than any soprano ever. Sarah has supreme presence and wonderful acting abilities.
SIMPLE PERFECT HIGH NOTE HITTING SOPRANO I EVER HEARD, but SHE GIVES MY EARS THAT.
Sorry Jackie you've got more to learn...Sarah would eat you alive
Sarah est la seule Soprano qui soit sortie des carcans de l'art classique pour y ajouter sa touche personnelle. Une merveille. Un véritable bijoux.V 4 Comments
Of the many sopranos I have heard over my 71 years, Anna Moffo had the clearest, most accurate, warmest, most 'open' voice. Her interpretations of the characters she played, were among the most musical and realistic of anyone else. She did receive some censure and criticism for her forays into the pop world, which in her day was anathema to an operatic career. Personally, I think it served to demonstrate her abilities beyond that of opera.
Anna Moffo has been underrated for a long time. I totally agree with the comment "She is the best Violleta, Lucia, Butterfly, Rosina as well as Micaela. No one does better than her". Even more, in my opinion, Anna Moffo was the number 1 soprano in all the most popular Italian and French operas!
She is the best Violleta, Lucia, Butterfly, Rosina as well as Micaela. No one does better than her!V 1 Comment
Perfect voice, never a strain, always beautiful, filled with feeling. Should be #1
Delicate, subtle, flexible, just brilliant
Amazing Voice Quality should be top 3
One of the most beautiful voice qualities of all time.
A most exciting voice with good technique wide range and the very characteristic articulation of notes.
Much too low on this list. Should be ranked 1st. The 20th century greatest singer.V 1 Comment
I have never heard anyone like her, she sings out of her heart and soul and excels at any type of music she chooses. Wish we could see more of her in the United States
Just has to be one of the best- in voice and presentation
Very promising & young but professional voice.
She has even more powerful voice than any of the previous listed sopranos!V 2 Comments
She is a true soprano. Listen to her when she is the lead singer in ABBA songs such as "SOS", "The Name of the Game", "Hasta Manana", " The Winner Takes It All", "One of Us" and more! Such a sweet voice!
She is a natural soprano! She should be in the Top 10! She doesn't need autotune and stays true to herself! - ivylee
With regard to sheer technique, rare beauty of timbre, and particularly the art of natural singing, Galli-Curci is the greatest singer of her time and perhaps of all time.
