      This page lists only biography, discography and bibliography links for individual Opera Singers, but not their Home Page links. The sites listed below do that so I don't have to.
      Sites with "Official" Singer Home Page Links
      Link Sources: -- CLOR - Wikipedia - MetDB
           - Durbeck Archive - Frank Hamilton - Carlton Higginbotham
           - Youngrok Lee
           - Bach Cantatas - Bob Rideout - Andrea Suhm-Binder

      Thanks to Brian Capon for the initial list of 187 opera singers with discographies on his CLOR Web site. More names will be added as I find other on-line Singer Biography and/or Discography sites, or more Singer Biographies in print.

Known Wisconsin Opera Singers (Met = performed at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City)
Helen Boatwright Clara Bonne Karl Brock Alan Cemore Robert Christesen (Met) Gail Dobish (Met)
Jeffrey Dooley Helene Hastreiter Klesie Kelly Melody Kielisch Jean Kraft (Met) Kurt Ollmann
Elliot Palay May Peterson (Met) Deborah Polaski (Met) Marilyn Schmiege (Met) Kenneth Schon (Met) Heidi Stober
Eva Tamulenas          

      Names with links are to birth date, birthplace, death date, and/or death place information, published bibliographical references to singer biographies and discographies, and their full names or birth names, if different from their stage names.
      FolkLib Index - Opera Bibliography
      ",Lastname" = the "," indicates the results shown here of my link and bibliography searches for this Singer have also been added to the Singer's Wikipedia page (at "External Links" and "References") for the benefit of the billions of people who do not know my Web site exists. In some cases where the Singer had no Wikipedia page before, I created one for them.
