I saw both Lippert and Ross as TURANDOT. The night I saw Ross she was partnered by Corelli and I can tell you it was a performance to remember. They were both in glorious voice--very exciting. That was in June 1974. Ross was a very fine soprano but was unfortunately eclipsed by many of the other sopranos of the 1970;s. Her TOSCA with Bergonzi was recently played on SIRIUS and it was quite good. She recently gave an interview in OPERA NEWS.


I liked Ross whenever I heard her: fearless chest voice! Saw her in a concert ATHALIA and she was a lot of fun though certainly not your typical 'Baroque' stylist.

Lippert was my first Marschallin!


I was personally acquainted with Bjoner in the 1980s in Munchen.
I am pleased to see the comments about her performances as Turandot at the Met. I had the good fortune of attending one of those Met performances.


I used to have a wonderful in-house WALKURE from Munich on reel-to-reel with Bjoner as Brunnhilde and Claire Watson as Sieglinde, conducted - if I recall correctly - by Kempe. The sound quality was awful but Bjoner was great, esp. in the Todesverkundigung.

I wish she had sung the Brunnhildes at the Met!
