Anna Moffo

The ravishingly beautiful American soprano Anna Moffo (1932 – 2006) began her stage career in Europe before making her American debut in 1957 as Mimì in La bohème. She made a vivid impression, too, in roles of Donizetti, Thomas, and Puccini. At the Met and all over the world she delighted audiences as Violetta, the role she sang more frequently than any other. With her luscious voice complemented by fabulous gifts as an actress, she was a natural for opera and operetta on film and television.
