This is so incredibly useful and informative. I notice one very important artist you seem to have missed: the Irish soprano Heather Harper who could sing anything from Cavalli to Webern and created the soprano part in Britten's War Requiem when Galina Vishnevskaya was disallowed by the Soviet authorities from participating in the world premiere. She died on 22 April at the age of 88, nearly 89. And of course the great German tenor Peter Schreier died on Christmas Day at the age of 84.


Hey there, two other very important opera singers you missed: Rolando Panerai, the great Italian baritone, at 95 on 22 October 2019, the same day as Raymond Leppard, and Marcello Giordani, the Italian tenor on 05 October 2019, aged only 56. Once again, thanks for the effort you put into this! (I'm sure you've taken note of Allee Willis, who died on Christmas Eve.)


all updated, thanks!
