050 Light Lyric Coloratura

A “fach” is an operatic voice type, or a way of categorizing a singer’s voice according to its range, weight, and color. A light lyric coloratura soprano has a very agile voice which is capable of fast musical acrobatics and clear high notes. Think of Beverly Sills or Kathleen Battle. This type of soprano may sing such light roles as Adele in Strauss' Die Fledermaus or Gilda in Verdi’s Rigoletto, occasionally crossing over to more dramatic roles, such as The Queen of the Night in Die Zauberflöte by Mozart.

Inspired by these ethereal voices, the Light Lyric Coloratura Draped-Front Cardigan is a lightweight and versatile garment with a flattering draped hem. It features historic lace patterns based on motifs found in pattern books from the late 1800’s.

The pattern includes nine sizes ranging from XS-5XL.
