Women's Day Picture
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.
