Reri Grist. My favorite coloratura soprano...shimmer and warmth in her voice that can make anyone smile. She found fame in Europe before opera was as accepting to African American singers in the US. Also, on the original cast recording for dream sequence Maria in West Side Story. She still lives in Austria...I want to meet her one day!
