Beverly Sills in Roberto Devereux

Soprano Beverly Sills made history in Elisabetta's role from the opera Roberto Devereux by Gaetano Donizetti.

Sills later recognized that her approach to this difficult bel canto role toke 10 years from her career.

For me she is one of the best "Elisabettas".

Just listen to her live from a performance in 1971 (NYC Opera).
