    That, she is!

    Corinne Winters, featured this month on Opera News Magazine's Sound Bites section, is also gorgeous, see her picture in my summary of the June issue [clicky]

    The above are girls, not women. I'll show you some women.

    Who do you think is the most physically alluring of the famed 20cent Wagnerian sopranos (in their natural attire)?

    Flagstad:



    Nilsson:



    Traubel:



    Varnay:



    Jones:

    I don't know what freaks me out the most - the nails or the headdress.


    And Flagstad. Never a great beauty, but she was rather beautiful, especially in the beginning of her career.

    But she didn't age particularly well, to put things mildly.

    Now Gwyneth Jones... FOX!

    She most decidedly did not, although the treatment she was getting for her psoriasis couldn't have helped much.

    OK, this one is really beautiful. I'll be seeing her live on July 27 at the Bard Summerscape Festival, in Chabrier's Le Roi Malgré Lui directed by our interviewee Thaddeus Strassberger and alongside our other interviewee Liam Bonner. It's Canadian soprano Andriana Chuchman.
