Examples of "soubrette"
A light-lyric soprano has a bigger voice than a
but still possesses a youthful quality. There are a wide variety of roles written for this voice, and they may sing
, baroque and other light roles as well.
roles are typically found in comic operas or operettas and they usually portray good-looking, youthful girls who are flirtatious, saucy, and street-wise. Typically these roles are sung by younger singers and both sopranos and mezzo-sopranos are cast in them. Many
roles have a considerable amount of spoken German dialogue, and therefore the
singer must possess both an excellent comprehension of the German language and considerable acting skills. It is rare today to find true soubrettes singing in major opera houses as their voices are typically unable to carry over larger orchestras in larger halls. Often lyric, coloratura, and mezzo-sopranos are cast in
roles, especially in the early part of their singing careers. This does not mean that these singers are
sopranos but it does mean they can play
roles. The coloratura soprano has a higher range, can sing more dexterous vocal passages and has a somewhat brighter sound than the
. The lyric soprano has a richer voice and higher range than the
soprano. The mezzo-soprano can sing as high as a
but with a darker timbre and heavier weight in the voice. Mezzos also have a much more extensive range in the lower register. In addition, the beautiful light voice of the
is ideal for baroque music, early music and baroque opera, as well as many art songs. However, the
soprano voice is limited even in this repertoire by its lack of coloratura skill and relatively limited range. Many operettas and musicals include
characters, such as Valencienne in "The Merry Widow" and in Gilbert and Sullivan, the Jessie Bond mezzo-soprano roles such as Cousin Hebe ("H.M.S. Pinafore") and Lady Angela ("Patience"). Another example is the character Ellie Mae Chipley, who sings "Life Upon the Wicked Stage" in Kern and Hammerstein's "Show Boat".

In classical music and opera, the term "
" refers to both a soprano voice type and a type of opera role. A
voice is light with a bright, sweet timbre, a tessitura in the mid-range, and with no extensive coloratura. A soubrette's vocal range extends approximately from middle C (C) to "high D" (D). The voice has a lighter vocal weight than other soprano voices with a brighter timbre. Many young singers start out as soubrettes but as they grow older and the voice matures more physically they may be reclassified as another voice type, usually either a light lyric soprano, a lyric coloratura soprano, or a coloratura mezzo-soprano. Rarely does a singer remain a
throughout her entire career. The tessitura of the
tends to lie a bit lower than the lyric soprano and spinto soprano.
The soprano voice type is generally divided into the coloratura,
, lyric, spinto, and dramatic soprano. The lyric soprano is the most common female singing voice.
