 Easy. First, there are coloratura mezzos, from Bartoli to Von Stade to
Horne back to Supervia and even Schumann-Heink. Second, there are
countertenors galore, including Daniels, Jaroussky, Cencic, and all the
rest who are now doing star turns. Finally, if you turn to early music, you
won't know where to stop, regardless of vocal range.

Subject: question about coloratura singing - other than sopranos

Attempting to explain =E2=80=9Ccoloratura=E2=80=9D singing for a friend, =
I=E2=80=99m trying to find examples of the style sung by singers other =
than sopranos. The only example that I can think of immediately is =
=E2=80=9CAh! per sempre io ti perdei=E2=80=9D from I Puritani. (Assuming =
that: A. the recitative is included and B. the singer is capable of =
performing it well! Matteo Manuguerra executes it beautifully in the =
1979 studio recording as does Ludovic Tezier in a live 2016 performance =
from Madrid).

Can anyone please point me in the direction of other interesting =
selections in other voice ranges?
