One of Croton's most notable residents--and opera legend--Jessye Norman--has died.
A dramatic soprano, Norman was associated with roles such as Wagner's Sieglinde, Ariadne by Richard Strauss, Gluck's Alceste, Beethoven's Leonore and both Cassandre and Dido in Les Troyens by Berlioz. Norman was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in 1999 and became a Spingarn Medalist in 2013.
