Her voice is STILL perfect even in her 80's.

My favorite photo of her was taken at Oprahs "Legends" retreat. Kathleen Battle laid her head on Leotyne's shoulder... I cried. I t was absolutely beautiful.

Ms. Price was a force to be reckoned with and is THE quintessential VERDI and Puccini soprano. She also has the range and agility of the coloratura and the texture of a spinto.

BRAVA DIVA!!!
