Edita Gruberová

Edita Gruberová

Edita Gruberová (born December 23, 1946), is a Slovak soprano who is one of the most acclaimed coloraturas of recent decades. She is noted for her great tonal clarity, agility, dramatic interpretation, and ability to sing high notes with great power, which made her an ideal Queen of the Night in her early years. In recent years, she has enjoyed some success with a number of the most important bel canto roles; however, her tendency to 'scoop' up to notes and slide back down inappropriately has attracted criticism.
