These are the singers and the roles that in my memory remain incomparable.
For me, nobody measures up to them.

Eleanor Steber as Fiordiligi, Donna Elvira & Donna Anna. Incredible
full-throttle singing, broad high-camp acting, a real diva-on-the-loose.

Rysanek. As Senta and the Empress.

Geraint Evans. As Beckmesser and Falstaff.

De Los Angeles. As just about everything.

Vickers. As Grimes.

Nilsson. As Turandot.

Sills. As Cleopatra and Baby Doe.

Lois Marshall. Singing ANYTHING in concert.

Callas. Everything.
