Personal Quote:

To be a Dramatic Soprano requires not so much the attributes of a singer, as those of a successful auctioneer or hog-caller. To blast your way through a Wagnerian orchestra, for instance, a beautiful tone is an absolute waste of time. You're much better off with the factory-whistle or buzz-saw type voice. With a good cutting edge. See more »

Trivia:

Her catchphrase was "I'm not making this up, you know!". See more »

Trademark:

Her amazing 30-minute comedic distillation of Wagner's 20-hour opera cycle "The Ring"

Star Sign:

Capricorn
