In a career that stretched over 50 years, soprano Renata Scotto sang more than 300 performances in 26 roles with the Metropolitan Opera, and defined bel canto singing on stages from La Scala to Covent Garden.

The 77-year-old soprano is being honored by the Metropolitan Opera Guild Feb. 27, with a special "Met Legends" evening celebrating her career. To mark the event, the veteran diva shares her favorite recordings, by Natalie Dessay, Jonas Kaufmann, Maria Callas, Maria Callas and Scotto herself.
