 In her early, pre-dramatic soprano days she was a wonderful Donna Anna at the English National Opera. She really should not have gone to the heavier repertoire. Back then her size was a casting problem in the full lyric soprano repertoire. I and many others predicted her early end many years ago. Too many people (including teachers, agents, companies, etc.) associate erroneously large bodies with dramatic roles. Sadly far too many singers are encouraged to 'progress' to heavier roles to their subsequent peril.

i must have missed eaglen's early career because i cannot comprehend how she
was considered to be great at one point.  when i saw her live with the NY
Philharmonic a few years ago, she sounded just ugly.  huge, big voice but
absolutely mud, sounded like she was barking more than anything else.  she
sang salome's last scene and the immolation scene with absolutely no color
or beauty of tone, just plenty of volume.
