Absolutely true.  There is a lot of flatting in that 'Aida'.  The in-between
quality of her voice is what made repertoire choice difficult for her. 
Berlioz was extremely congenial, but not a whole lot else.

>Early in her career, Norman sang some tough soprano roles.  There's a an
recording of a live AIDA she performed.  Unfortunately, most soprano roles,
her voice sounded generic and somewhat uncomfortable.
>It was when she embraced the lower range that she became a unique performer.
