A lyric soprano who could comfortably double as a coloratura, Welsh singer PRICE, born Margaret Bernice Price in Blackwood, Caerphilly, Wales, England in 1941, debuted as Cherubino in Mozart's Marriage of Figaro in 1962 and went on to earn her reputation interpreting that composer, especially Donna Anna in Don Giovanni, Pamina in The Magic Flute and the Contessa in Figaro, and Verdi. She has sung at Covent Garden, the Glyndebourne Festival Opera, the Metropolitan Opera, the Opéra de Paris, the Vienna State Opera and in San Francisco and Chicago. Interestingly, despite her success in opera, she prefers to sing lieder, or romantic music songs. She was knighted in 1993. FORRESTER, born Maureen Kathleen Stewart Forrester Montreal, Quebec, Canada in 1930, is possibly Canada's most famous operatic contralto and known for her interpretations of Gustav Mahler's symphonies and her stamina. She made her professional debut at a Montreal recital in 1953 and didn't make her operatic premiere until 1962, in Glucks' Orfeo ed Euridice. Since then, she's made her name in opera in roles like the stepmother in Massenet's Cendrillo, the Witch in Engelbert Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel, the Countess in Tchaikovsky's Queen of Spades and Poulenc's Dialogues des Carmélites, with performances at the Metropolitan Opera. Fans of the TV series The Adventures of Tintin may also recognize her voice as that of Bianca Castafiore. Price was named a Companion of the Order of Canada in 1986. A singer who makes up for his vocal shortcomings with a sophisticated knowledge of stage acting and sheer versatility, TEAR, born in Barry, South Wales, England in 1939, is a Welsh tenor who is most often associated with the works of British composers Benjamin Britten and Sir Michael Tippett. He debuted in Britten's Rape of Lucretia with the English Opera Group in 1963 and since created a career playing character as well as leading roles. Tear is also a conductor, making his debut in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1985, and has made over 200 recordings. He was made a Commander of the British Empire in 1984. GRAMM (1927-1983), born in Milwaukee, Minnesota, was an American operatic bass-baritone who performed at the Glyndebourne Opera Festival and the Metropolitan Opera (1964-1984), as well as throughout the United States. He reportedly had a tendency to forget his lines on stage... and the ability to cover up such gaffes with brilliant improvisations. KRAUSE, born in 1934 in Helsinki, Finland, is a Finnish baritone. He was originally a psychiatrist with a medical degree from Helsinki University, but gave it up to pursue singing. He debuted in 1957 in Berlin and has been a member of the Hamburg State Opera since 1962. He debuted in America at Tanglewood in Massachusetts in 1963.
