True, but even if you don't buy the Patecleaver thing, she was still a different character from Connie now for over 37 years. It's like if they were to change the GH narration now to reveal himself as an anarchist just so they can tie it into the dynamite man changing portrait. The portrait's always been the basis for a character. I don't care for the idea of Constance being the Widow myself for own reasons, but if that's the Imagineer's canon then I won't debate it. I'm just stating that she was a completely different character long before the Imagineers now came in and said "Let's make up an original character, only we'll connect it to/ change her into a prexisting one."I don't buy the Petecleaver thing. The basis for the Constance character has been there since Day 1.
Actually, the soprano opera singer is voiced by Loulie Jean Norman, a well sought-after soprano studio singer from the 30s to the 90s. I did a whole post on the graveyard singers and their vocal talent in a post a while ago here.
