Soprano is the highest women's voice. In opera, there are several types of soprano. The coloratura soprano dazzles the audience with trills, runs and other technical feats. The dramatic soprano produces a powerful sound and sings roles in operas such as those by Wagner and Strauss, and the lyric soprano has a lighter, sweeter voice more suited to the song-like arias such as those found in French and Italian operas.
