Vaness was born in San Diego and launched her professional career in 1977 with the San Francisco Opera. She appeared regularly at the New York City Opera from 1979 to 1983. She was particularly known for her Mozart operatic roles, but she has performed in a wide range of operas, including the title role in Giacomo Puccini's Manon Lescaut with the Seattle Opera. Her interpretations of Mozart's dramatic heroines, including Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte, Donna Anna and Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni, Elettra in Idomeneo, and Vitellia in La Clemenza di Tito, have been hailed as definitive, and she has become especially identifiable with the role of Tosca, which she performed at the Metropolitan Opera in 2004 opposite Luciano Pavarotti in the legendary.

Mozart - Deh vieni, non tardar. Susanna's aria is taken from the opera buffa (comic opera) Marriage of Figaro, composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1786. The opera tells how the servants Figaro and Susanna succeed in getting married, foiling the efforts of their philandering employer Count Almaviva to seduce Susanna and teaching him a lesson in fidelity. Like most popular arias, one of the best versions is a live recording by the Three Tenors, Luciano Pavarotti, Jose Carreras and Placido Domingo. One of the best recent recordings of this piece is by the British soprano Natasha Marsh on her self-titled debut album: Latest features.
