    Nice meeting you and hope the fame I've got from the net about this forum is true .
    Hello Roger

    Who are your favourite singers?

    I like Conchita Supervia, Olive Fremstad and Renee Fleming.

    I would guess that RogerX's favorite singers list has Joan Sutherland right up there at the top.
    "All of Italian opera can be heard in [Bellini's] "Ah! non creda [mirarti]."
    --Renata Scotto in "Scotto, More Than a DIva."

    Was her death caused by the face lift? Back then surgery was rather crude.

    From Wiki:

    “In 1929 she returned for the last time to Europe and then visited Egypt, where she contracted a fever that she never entirely shook off Her last performance was in London at a charity concert on 10 June 1930.She returned to Australia but died in St Vincent's Hospital, Sydney, in 1931, aged 69, of septicaemia which had developed after facial surgery in Europe some time before. She was given an elaborate funeral from Scots' Church, Melbourne, which her father had built and where as a teenager she had sung in the choir. The funeral motorcade was over a kilometre long, and her death made front-page headlines in Australia, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and Europe. Billboards in many countries said simply "Melba is dead". Part of the event was filmed for posterity. Melba was buried in the cemetery at Lilydale, near Coldstream. Her headstone bears Mimì's farewell words: "Addio, senza rancor" (Farewell, without bitterness)”
