    50 great singers to be reviewed in-Depth

    Other of our projects in Opera Lively will be to review in-Depth the career, singing style and best roles of some great singers already retired, or just about to retire in the next years. We will not address here Anna Natrebko, Juan Diego Flórez or Jonas Kaufmann, we will have a lot of opportunities in other threads.

    We have selected a list of 25 males and 25 females. Again, there will be many singers that you can miss here... but there's nothing preventing you from opening a thread, or just a post, to remember them too!.

    This is the list, in alphabetic order:

    In more distant future, I think I would be willing to do Franco Corelli.

    If non-listed singers would fit too, I could also write a Wiesław Ochman thing.

    All depends, first I would like to see how other articles will be like so I may judge if I find myself capable and eager to contribute with something valueable.

    I would be willing to take care of Fritz Wunderlich -- but, like Aramis, I'd wish to get a sense of the sort of information you'd like to include on each featured singer.

    And if there is time, interest, etc., I could also take on Sena Jurinac as a non-listed "bonus" singer.

    Just read the already available reviews of Rosa Ponselle and Claudia Muzio (this one is not yet completed), so you can get a good idea.

    About starting a thread for non-listed singers, I think is great. I just did one with Anita Cerquetti myself.

    Anna Moffo would be a worthy non-listed singer.

    So far, we have already covered Rosa Ponselle, Claudia Muzio and Fritz Wunderlich.

    Plus In-Depth articles on non listed singers such as Natalie Dessay, Anita Cerquetti and Sena Jurinac.

    Not bad for our first five months.
