    There are so many...

    Just to mention one, "Song to the Moon" - "Mésicku Na Nebi Hlubokém", from Rusalka:

    Hard to pick, but right now "Ombra di nube" by Refice. Probably because it was sublimated by Claudia Muzio.




    In the words of Renee Fleming, it was " sung so beautifully [by Muzio] that I think none of us had dared to sing it...".

It's a simple text, too, a woman remembering her first embrace, first kiss, first love.

    Youtube has several good versions but my faves are 2 from Renee Fleming (one concert, one the Met) and 1 from Anna Moffo (a TV concert).

    I don't think there is a more lovely aria for soprano than Depuis le Jour. Your comments or fave lyrical soprano aria?
    I don't know if I could better it. It is a vehicle for revealing the talent of the best interpreters: I'll mention Alessandra Marc, Sutherland and Sills.... all wonderful. Price, too.

    This is in contention for number one: I love the fact that it requires a good low register at the beginning and allows the personalization with optional high note and or embelishment at the climax. Gorgeous melody and very exposed voice. Requires an optimal voice. Ponselle is best at the beginning and Sutherland is best at the climax, and early Callas wins overall.

    I think Un bel di vedremo from Madama Butterfly is the most beautiul soprano aria here sung by Mihoko Kinoshita:
