Dame Gwyneth Jones (born 1936 in Pontnewynydd, Wales) is a Welsh soprano opera singer wo made her professional debut in 1962 as a mezzo-soprano in Gluck's opera Orfeo ed Euridice. She soon discovered that her easy top range could enable her to sing soprano roles.

Dame Gwyneth achieved over-night fame in 1964 when she stood in for Leontyne Price as Leonora in Verdi's Il Trovatore at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Her career then went from strength to strength, and she met with success as Aida, Leonore (in Fidelio), Desdemona (in Otello), Elisabeth (in Don Carlos), Donna Anna (in Don Giovanni), Cio-Cio San (in Madama Butterfly), Lady Macbeth (in Verdi's Macbeth), ….

One of her most lauded achievements was her interpretation of Brunnhilde in the Bayreuth centennial production of Der Ring des Nibelungen under Pierre Boulez and directed by Patrice Chéreau, a performance preserved on both video and audio discs. The recording won a Grammy in 1983.

Widely considered as one of the foremost dramatic sopranos of the 20th Century, Dame Gwyneth has been in demand in opera houses all over the world and has been collaborating with eminent conductors and directors including Abbado, Barbirolli, Bernstein, Böhm, Boulez, Davis, Kleiber, Krips, Sawallisch, Solti… just to name a few.

She was awarded the C.B.E. (Commander of the British Empire) in 1976 and became a Dame of the British Empire in 1986.
