Opera Star Risë Stevens, 99
"On the Met's roster from 1938 to 1961, Ms. Stevens" - a mezzo - "was a superstar in an era when operatic superstardom was conferred mostly on sopranos and tenors. A Bronx native from a modest background, she was widely admired as a populist who help democratize the rarefied world of opera."
