Notes & Reviews:

The perfect companion to Opera d'Oro's previous release, "Opera's Greatest Heroes"! The heroines of opera have not had an easy path to victory; most of them have endured disgrace, abuse, even death before being recognized for their true worth. Their stories are told here in song and drama by some of the finest women singers of the past century.
