Angela Meade

Angela will sing a couple of performances of Norma at the Met this fall. 



Heidi Melton 

Heidi made her proms debut this summer as Elisabeth in Tannhäuser.

Leah was at the Arena di Verona singing Leonora in Il Trovatore.

 


Stephanie Blythe

Meredith Arwady

Meredith will be in San Francisco for Falstaff this fall.


Karen Slack

Karen recently appeared in Dead Man Walking.  She knows how to do a glamor shot.


I saw a post today about the 10 hottest plus sized celebrities, and it occurred to me that I was long overdue for an opera list.  I've heard all of these women and find them to be excellent.  Forgive me if I missed anything.

In the wake of Taragate it occurs to me that I neglected to include any men in my plus size singers item.  I deeply apologize.
