    I've got a secret
    Not entirely on topic, but may be of interest to classical voice lovers.

    A contralto singing in the tenor range. Not actually that rare for them to be able to do that.

    Magda Olivero was once asked which role she'd most like to play.
    Her answer was: Otello.

    Is okay. I found it somewhere posted here some years ago. It warrants its own thread. The question is, are there any other examples of this phenomenon? Or is she it? Too late to get her to sing anything classical.
