    Default Who is the best soprano of all time?

    Who is the best soprano of all time and why?

    PS: please pick your top 1-3. also, if you've selected other, please specify your prima donna of choice. I've tried to provide a list of sopranos from across the spectrum (lyric, dramatic, dramatic coloratura, lirico spinto etc)

    Edits:
    1) if you love Maria Callas but don't think she's a soprano, vote for her anway
    2) you don't have to be an opera snob to vote (although props if you are lol). anyone who is tasteful enough to enjoy any classically trained soprano is welcome to vote
    3) I'm really sorry if I don't have your prima donna of choice. Type C only allows for 20 poll options
    4) feel free to POST CLIPS!

    Well, someone had to do it, and you knew it

    As for the subject, I really have no idea.

    I don't pretend to know enough about opera to say who's the best of all time, but I really like Montserrat Caballe's voice.

    Not an opera snob but Maria Callas bar none. Depth and breath, unbeatable!

    If you don't believe she's a soprano, listen to this aria, Un bel di vedremo. Sends shivers up and down my spine everytime I hear it.

    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4dOpvVMfqg]Callas[/youtube]

    That she's capable of doing mezzo roles due to her range, doesn't necessarily make her one.
