Rita Gorr sang both the Third Norn (yes, the soprano one) and Waltraute in Gotterdamerung. She also sang the Immolation Scene in concert.

Astrid Varnay sang the Third Norn, and in the seventies, when she was singing mezzo/character parts, sang the First Norn. Likewise, she also sang both Senta and Senta's nurse, Mary. 

Seefried did sing all four of the Hoffman ladies in the late forties, but she dropped Olympia after that series, realizing it was a mistake, confining herself thereafter to Antonia. 

In Vienna, she shared Antonia with Jurinac. Welitsch and Hilde Konetzni sang Giulietta. Lipp sang Olympia.
