Me too. Bob and I have a long history of agreeing (and, on occasion, disagreeing) about singers.

For me, opera is drama as well as music so I have a high tolerance for voices that may be lacking in (subjective, of course) beauty as long as the singer is able to delve into characterization. However, in Scotto’s case, I can’t get past what I hear as an unattractive timbre even though she’s an excellent interpreter. But that’s just me and I respect the next guy’s taste.
