The Most Beautiful Faces in Opera
Posted 24 June 2003 - 06:20 PM
Anna Moffo (remember when she got in trouble for those risque roles?)
Lily Pons for figure, if nothiing else. Good gracious.
Corelli, of course. Sigh....although I am not a tenor groupie....
I always love Thomas Stewart (I happen to like the eyebrows.....)
Callas in a class by herself
Juan Diego Flores, Thomas Hampson, Jose Cura....now.

For instance, Kiri te Kanawa, who was one of the most breathtaking women on any stage, offstage is an attractive woman with overly close-set eyes. Rise Stevens was chic & attractive enough offstage but on, the woman was dynamite.
Anderson, Battle, Fleming & Mattila are in the OnorOff category.
Deborah Voigt & Jessye Norman look like very big ladies onstage but off they are both quite beautiful women.

I think Marilyn Horne has a very beautiful face.

Anna Netrebko , young soprano of the Mariinsky, is extremely beautiful. She sang at the televised St Petersburg 300th anniversary gala concert last May. She has a wonderful voice too. See her here:
I just found this review of Netrebko's first solo CD on the andante.com website; it was originally from the Raleigh NC The News and Observer. There's a stunning photo of her on the album cover, as wonderful as the review of her singing: andante.com

Two up and comers who have simply beautiful faces (and voices) are Donita Volkwejn and Suzanne Ramo.
Mel Ulrich is a truly dreamy baritone. Bryn Terfel is kind of goofy looking in person, but onstage he's quite charismatic.

Farrell Fan (I think it was farrellfan) why "in the eyes of the beholder"? Isn't that the case whatever?
&, yes, Marilyn Horne has the most amazing skin I've ever seen on a real live person.
