Sometimes You're In, Sometimes You're Out: 12 Top Singers

See which singers made the cut!
Limelight magazine attempts to name the 12 greatest opera singers of today. The panel of experts making the decision included Warwick Fyfe (baritone), Amelia Farrugia (soprano), Emma Matthews (soprano), Brian Castles-Onion (conductor), Brett Weymark (conductor), Anthony Legge (conductor), Damien Beaumont (ABC presenter), Maree Ryan (chair of vocal studies, Sydney Conservatorium), Sarah Noble (opera critic), Anthony Clarke (Limelight critic), Greg Keane (Limelight critic), Ken Page (Limelight critic), Francis Merson (Limelight editor), Steven Murdoch (Limelight reader) and Roberta Small (Limelight reader).

Conspicuously missing from the list: Thomas Hampson, Diana Damrau, Angela Gheorghiu, Stephanie Blythe, Dolora Zajick and Dmitri Hvorostovsky. But check out the complete list with photos, CD recommendations and YouTube clips, by clicking here.
