Women's Day Picture

This picture appeared on women's day.

Row 1:  Renee Fleming, Montserrat Caballé, Aïnhoa Arteta, Natalie Dessay, Anna Netrebko. 
Row 1.5 (short):  Leontyne Price, Lina Cavalieri, Kiri te Kanawa, Angela Gheorghiu.
Row 2:  Angela Gheorghiu (again), might be Nellie Melba? (small), Diana Damrau, Jessye Norman, Joan Sutherland (small), Cecilia Bartoli, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Kathleen Battle, Joyce DiDonato.
Row 3:  Maria Callas, Victoria de los Angeles, Rosa Ponselle, might be Elly Ameling?, Kirstin Flagstad, Mirella Freni, Renata Tebaldi.

They are all there.  All the phases of my operatic heroines are represented, including Elisabeth, Leontyne, Kirsten, Victoria, Kathleen, Jessye, Cecilia, Anna, Natalie.  Perhaps Christa and Tatiana are missing, but then Cecilia and Joyce are the only mezzos.

I think the one on the top row, third form the left, where you have the question mark, is Aïnhoa Arteta. Could be wrong, but I think it is her.

I think I found the exact photo. So yes.

The one between Price and Te Kanawa is Lina Cavalieri.

Thank you. Do you like my guesses?
