Frances Ginsberg, American Soprano, Dies at 55

Known for her large, bright voice and expressive acting, she was most closely associated with the spinto repertory. She made her City Opera debut in 1986, singing the dual roles of Margherita and Elena in “Mefistofele,” an 1868 opera by the Italian poet and composer Arrigo Boito. Other opera companies with which she appeared include the Houston and Fresno Grand Operas; the San Diego, Pittsburgh, Utah and Cincinnati Operas; the Welsh National Opera; and l’Opéra de Nice.
