Fun question indeed.  For Bette Davis, Astrid Varnay.  Sorry to transgress 
the parameter, but Crawford = la Callas.

I’m sure that I’m not the only one enjoying the FX series “Feud: Bette and 
Joan”.  It is really enthralling and entertaining.

Of course, it would be overkilll if an opera came out of this "sujet 
délicieux", but my question is: what voice type or range would be assigned 
to the two ladies?  And an even more fun question, what singers  from the 
past, present or both would best portray the roles?  For the time being, let’s 
make this triviality Callasless.

Crawford did indeed study with Ponselle, who designated her as a contralto, 
but I don’t think that Joan would have approved of a comparison to a Butt.
