Opera's Biggest Divas In 2008

The end of the year is near which means it is time for all those "best of" lists that start to appear everywhere. This one comes from the London Telegraph and lists the biggest diva's in 2008.

We're pretty smitten with pick numero dos, Anja Harteros, who made her role debut as Violetta with us in Traviata (she's since recorded the role) and then came back to sing Amelia in Simon Boccanegra (that's her to the left, with Lado Ataneli) -- the same role that earned her that number two spot on this list, albeit in a different production than the one we had here.
For those that care, Anja returns next season as Mimi in La boheme. Yay for opera!
