Favourite Carlottas

Post  IamErik771 on Thu Sep 24, 2009 8:20 pm

I think our favourite temperamental diva deserves a topic, don't you? Very Happy My top ten would probably look something like this:

Priti Coles
Kim Stengel (seen live)
Kazuo Kawai
Margaret Mary Kane
Anette Stridh
Kris Koop
Rosemary Ashe
Elena Jeanne Batman
Lyse Guerin
Judy Kaye

At the moment:

Kris Koop
Anne Runolfsson
Patricia Philips

Though the first two are so close that it's essentially a tie.

It's all about Kim Stengel for me. I've never seen her equal, live or otherwise.

Oh yeah, Kim Stengel all the way! I also really loved the chick who played in Toronto during the last months of the old Canadian production, though I've forgotten her name. Actually, her performance, as I remember it, was very similar to Stengel's now that I think about it. Great vocals, and great comedy!

Kim Stengel is one that I've seen and I liked her but I also saw Patricia Phillips and I think that I'm more partial to her performance. I've heard Kris Koop is great too. She played Christine as well, didn't she?

Wendy Ferguson and Kate Radmilovic (I seem to be in the minority liking Kate, but I thought she was fantastic).

Seriously, seek out Vera Bosirova on YouTube. She's not afraid to improvise, ha-ha!

After seeing her last night, Rebecca Lock is by far my favourite! I want to go again just to see her!

Only seen pictures of Valda Aviks, but always fun to hear details about those doing the role "pre internet" (you know what I mean).

Very sad I didn't get to see Rebecca Lock. Everyone seems crazy about her! I saw a good understudy (Melanie Growie), but she reminded me a bit too much of Wendy Ferguson. Most people loved WF, so it's not a bad thing, but I was never a big fan of WF...

I've not seen Melanie Gowie, but I've heard she's quite similar to Wendy Ferguson. It's a shame you didn't see Rebecca or the second cover, Nicola Rutherford. Both are brilliant, and quite different to Wendy.

I prefer Nicola's voice to Melanie's, I would actually rather she were first cover but Rebecca just owns the role I think.

I agree, Rebecca owns the role. However, I would love to see Nicola again as she's my second favourite Carlotta.
