Gosh, even with my crummy little computer speakers, she sounds awesome. Heard her role debut in the title role of "Ariadne auf Naxos" at the SF Opera late in her career, and loved every second of it. As a Very Grand Diva in the Prologue, she could not have been more perfectly typecast. In the opera proper, that voice just soared.
