According to the article in the NY Times, she "only" had to go up to a G in "The Tempest". It 
also mentions a couple of recent Olympias who've gone up to an A-flat. According to the 
article, the A is the highest note they KNOW has been sung in a Met performance, though "it is 
possible that an even higher note could have slipped through the archival cracks."

The article also notes that there's an even higher B in the score of "The Exterminating Angel", 
but it's in brackets as an option.
