Bainbridge was a highly respectable Erda, and just about owned Auntie in 
PETER  GRIMES for years. She even did it at the MET one season.  They 
may not be Amneris, but they aren't "bit [[arts" either.

She was usually cast in comprimaria parts, but the little I heard shows she was worthy of bigger parts. I think she did sing Amneris and Ulrica at Covent Garden.

You only need two things: WD-40 and Duct Tape.  If something moves and 
it shouldn't, use the Duct Tape.  If it won't move and it should, use 
the WD-40.
