So wonderful to see your posting about Anne. I am fortunate to study voice with her at ASU. She is a wonderful teacher, mentor, and friend.


Thank you for putting a note here, Jennifer. I've heard hundreds and hundreds of operatic voices over the years but I can still vividly recall the sound of Anne Elgar's voice. Please give her my love and regards when you see her.

I was so glad to see this post. My “first” Mimi was Anne Elgar in NY. (Last night I saw a performance in Detroit at our Michigan Opera Theater) So I started to remember m first and I remembered Anne and her wonderful performance but wish I could remember the tenor.
Any ideas?


Some possibilities would be Michele Molese, Nicholas di Virgilio, Enrico di Giuseppe...any of those names ring a bell?

You are quite right: a remarkable soprano indeed! It surprised me that she hasn't had a big international career. When she was on her peak these days, she would be a worldstar, I think. Do you know her recording of Rossini's La pietra del paragone? It's with Carreras (his first recording) and Justino Diaz. A delightful recording with a great ensemble spirit. Elgar doesn't have a very big role, but the notes she sing are wonderful and pure! If you are interested in a copy, please mail me!
