    Whether she was your favorite or not; certainly one of the greatest voices.
    So many of her associates are a part of the "heavenly choir". now.

    I didn't realize that she was in her 80's! R.I.P. "La Stupenda" -- your voice is/was unforgettable.

    Very sad to hear this. I just watched the news and it wasn't mentioned at all. She was never my favourite actress within the opera world, but the incredible virtuosity of her technique should never be forgotten.

    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    A glorious talent with a wonderfully down-to-earth opinion of herself.

    Condolences to Sir Richard Bonynge and the rest of her family.

    There is another thread for "La Stupenda" in addition to this one.

    I admired her brilliant artistry and her humor, although Leontyne Price's voice has been my favorite for many years.

    She and Sir Richard Bonynge were so very fortunate to be such a close-knit team professionally and personally through the majority of their careers.
