Default Greatest opera vocal performance

So, what is, in your opinion, the greatest vocal performance?

My favorite opera is Bizet's "Carmen", but as a single performance, this is the best I've heard:

I'm not that much aware and competent of this art form, so I'd be happy if you share your opinion of best operas and performances.

It depends on who is singing it. Some singers are better than others and some performances as a whole are better than other ones.

I don't know about greatest, since it's all subjective anyway, but one of my favorites:

Jussi Bjorling: Nessun Dorma - Composer: Puccini - Opera: Turandot - Live @ Stockholm (1944)

the coloratura soprano(soprano having the ability to sing very high-pitched and change from low to high immensely quickly) in the tempest(story by Shakespeare, written into an opera) was very good, even though the music wasn't very special. It was fun to watch, but I can't remember a single note from the whole opera. The coloratura soprano, Audrey Elizabeth Luna, did an amazing job, just like most characters, because the opera in general is very hard to sing.
