A soprano who sings elaborate ornamentation containing improvised or written out running passages and trills. This style was common in the 18th and 19th centuries in such arias as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's "The Magic Flute" Queen of the Night. These arias usually require a soprano with an extended high range.
