Singers of the Paris Opera - Denise Scharley
With her unique mezzo contralto voice, Denise Scharley was able to make an impression in all the great roles of her repertoire. Admired by Francis Poulenc, Scharley remains in the opinion of many, unmatched to this day in the role of the Prioress in Les Dialogues des Carmelites.
She also had the temperament of a tragic actress as she demonstrates on this CD as Carmen, Charlotte from Werther (Massenet) and Dalila from Saint-Saens.
An interesting document of her most famous performances.
