What a pleasure to find this site. I knew Anna was popular back when, but thought I was one of a few who adored her. I am cursed with perfect pitch, and few sopranos can hit that note on the first try, and stay on it! It's actually painful for me. Our Anna's voice was strong, clear, and true. Thank you, you made my day.

Geez, Mark, why don't you update your page once in awhile. :-P

As much as i'm impressed by what i heard on the sound clips, it seems that you've altogether neglected Renata Tebaldi who has the most beautiful, resplendent human voice on the planet.

Ive gotta say your way off saying that stuff about her performance in LA RODINE it is such a sweet opera and annas performace is the best ive heard, 10 times better than the emi recording with Gheorghin & Alagna. Ive seen the opera live 3 times and i am i s number one fan. It kills me every time i listen to it (everyday!). OK it has faults.But Try sitting down with the libreto, your missing one of Puccinis great works (& sadly neglected) great website and all the best in the future Joe Redmond Dublin Ireland.

Why did Anna Moffo retire so young?

Moffo's "Mozart Arias" was released in the United States on July 11th. The CD contains several BONUS arias that are not on the LP from "Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail", "Don Giovanni", "Cosi Fan Tutti", and "Il re pastore". Happy Listening!

What a great website. Stars may come and stars may go, but there is only one Anna Moffo! The last of the great prima donnas! [I know it should be prime donne - but, whatever.] To all those out there who saw her onstage as Violetta, I tell you, I really en y you all. One of Miss Moffo's most delightful recordings is "La mia voce per Venezia" which is a selection of Bellini, Rossini, Donizetti and Verdi songs to piano accompaniment, which she made for the Venice in Peril foundation. I listen to it often. Let s all wish Miss Moffo a very Happy Birthday for later in June! She's really special.

Hi, Just bought a CD of Anna Moffo as Carmen. I never thought of her in that role. In fact, I was rather dubious. But her performance as Carmen was just excellent!!! I was really amazed. For a woman who was noted for her great lyric roles she was an excellent Carmen. Bert Now it is one of my favorite recordings.

Hello! I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Moffo (STILL BEAUTIFUL!)at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York on March 2nd, where she was honored for the 40th anniversary of her Metropolitan Opera debut. She would like her fans to contact her at the address listed below: Anna Moffo c/o Metropolitan Opera Guild Board of Directors 30 Lincoln Center New York NY 10023 U.S.A.

Dear Mark, Anna Moffo was my fist love.... and I'm still looking for some records which are not available on CD such as there are LA JUIVE (Highlights) from Halévy or Songs of DEBUSSY. Rumour has it that she has also registered I Pagliacci at the Vienna Volksoper (I'm Austrian, but this record is owhere available). Do you know if she ever registered Norinas Aria So anch'io la virtů magica... or O mio babbino caro?? Are there some other registrations existing of which I do not know??? I would really appreciate your reply.... Best greetings from Vienna Norbert

Excellent site. She IS the best in my opinion. If anyone knows how I can get ahold of The Dream Duet, a compilation of Jeanette MacDonald / Nelson Eddy songs, recorded by Ms. Moffo & Sergio Franchi? Also on an album I used to have (we had a fire) she d es a piece from Ernani that is absolutely the voice of god (ok, small g) PLEASE help me. I can't get enough of her voice. Thank you! And thank you Anna!
Robin - 03/31/00 21:35:11
I'm mad about ANNA! Searching for obscure items which may or may not be available on CD / video, great site this!
Sean - 03/14/00 17:33:02
I used to be obsessed with Leontyne Price (still am maybe) but Anna Moffo is now tops. Your information shows your discerning insight for a beautiful voice. I'm thinking of compiling a selection of recordings called "Moffo in Distress" in which I will gro p her operatic distress scenes: Ah buon Marcello aiuto, aiuto...(La Boheme); Teneste la promesa...(La Traviata); Allora, Allora...(L'amore dei tre re); and the final scene duo from Luisa Miller with Bergonzi. You've inspired my confidence that this is not an abnormality.

Hi, it's me. Sorry I haven't been online, or updated my page at all, in the past year or so. I live off-campus now and don't have access to the internet as easily as I did on-campus. This may or may not change next fall. Thank you to all of you who wr te. -Mark

Hey Mark, where have you been boy. I never see you on ICQ or AIM :((( Well I hope all is well with you and your past semester went great. Email me sometime or ICQ me so I know what is up with you.
Ed Beach - 10/24/99 20:15:23
I really enjoyed your page on Anna Moffo. I just purchased an Rca CD of 1960 recordings of Moffo singing arias frm Faust, Boheme, Dinorah, etc. Very lovely. Your comments were well written and the page on the other Divas you enjoy was enlightening. I agree with every word you write on Eleanor Steber and the Barber work. Thanks Ed Be
Allen Grzanka - 09/15/99 01:44:27
Dear Mark, Was led to your site by SENTA on the MET standing room chat site. I congratulate you. You have done a fine job. On Standing Room I am recognized by all as the resident and foremost Moffo fan. My collection of LPs, CDs, videos, tapes exceeds 70 spanning 1955 to 1978. I heard her live dozens of times between 1960 and 1987? Anyway, your web site is terrific. Allen
Ron - 06/08/99 00:00:54
Excellent Moffo profile. Saw her as Violetta 1967, also dazzled by her beauty. Unfortunately when I saw her again in late 70s (Violetta, Nedda) her "crooning" had began. A Carnegie Hall recital in late 70s was knocked by critics but I enjoyed it immens ly. Of that era I also like Schwartzkopf and Lucine Amara, the latter in a very interesting though vocally miscast AIDA. Thanks, bud, Ron

Great stuff for opera buffs, and nice clips.

Michael Davis - 10/22/98 13:46:33
Great and very interesting site, may I name a few mezzo's that would be an asset and were missed, Dolora Zajick a brilliant Amneris, Christa Ludwig marvelous in any role that she tackles and Faith Esham, although I love Cecilia Bartoli in Mozart and Rossi i roles she could not tackle the roles these others do. Agree with remarks re Joan Sutherland ever tried following a libretto with her Italian pronounciation?
Angie Fraser - 10/21/98 23:47:10
I saw a picture of Anna Moffo in The New York Times at Domingo's 30 annivesary reception. She looked great! Anyone out there know how to contact her?
Rolf Wickman - 10/21/98 07:47:43
My favorite opera soprano is Anna Moffo. Nobody before or after her has been able to touch my heart like she does. As a matter of fact, she taught me how to like opera!
Angie Fraser - 10/20/98 14:47:43
At last! Someone who loves Moffo's voice as much as I do! I've been "hooked on Moffo" ever since I heard her "La Traviata" with Tucker and Merrill. I give her a lot of credit for my love of opera. It was her beautiful voice that encouraged me to continue to listen to and study opera. I had the honor of meeting her in 1978 and found her to be a very gracious, beautiful woman.
